Dan Emmerson - Ep#15

December 6, 2019

Welcome to probably the last episode for the year where we chat to the multi-talented Dan Emmerson.

First a quick advert for our recording space which was donated to us by Desklodge. Desklodge is a hotdesk and office rental space that have two locations in Bristol and one in Basingstoke. You can pay by the hour for just £3 per hour and £20 (ex. VAT) for a whole day. For more pricing take a look at the Desklodge website or give them a call. New members get 2 free days!

Dan is a multi-talented creative who has worked with digital 2D, 3D as well as illustration and even programming. He's a really nice person and terribly busy with a project that he could not talk about due to an NDA. We talk about his university experience, the tools he uses, his Fleshy Friends project and a brief touch on D&D before we all get drawing.

Jamie Frew - Nov Bonus Episode

Jamie Frew - Nov Bonus Episode

November 21, 2019
Welcome to our first bonus episode where we talk to Jamie Frew who is the designer of a card game called The Old Hellfire Club.
 
We were supposed to have a full episode with Jamie and did chat to him for over an hour but due to an operator error we only actually recorded the second half of the chat. We didn't want our listeners to miss out on what we did manage to record so we decided to release it anyway. We give you a bit of an extended intro as to how we found out about The Old Hellfire Club at UK Games Expo back in 2018. It took us a while to manage to organise a chat with Jamie but we caught up with him in London attending Tabletop Gaming Live.
 
Apologies for the sound quality but we did record this inside Alexandra Palace.

Sarah Millman - Ep#14 - Part 2

Sarah Millman - Ep#14 - Part 2

November 1, 2019

Welcome to part two of our bumper 14th episode for November with Sarah Millman.

If you have not already listened to Part 1 of this then we would advise you to go and do that. In this section we get Sarah rolling a whole bunch of dice in which she gets what is known in D&D as a critical fail! Nothing is a critical fail in our book, not even Chris's poorly drawn horselike creature. From this chaos comes a beautiful fantasy scene involving castles, princesses and a deep conspiracy. You can see all of the drawings via our social media links below.

Remember to check out NPC Tea, you can grab a copy from Sarah's Etsy page and catch her at ComiXology 205 during Thought Bubble 2019. Thanks again, Sarah. We look forward to seeing you at the convention.

Ros Beeson - Ep#13

Ros Beeson - Ep#13

October 4, 2019

It's our thirteenth episode and in October... oooh, spooky. We are honoured to have the wonderful improviser and sketch comedy performer/writer Ros Beeson join us. As much as this might sound like clickbait you would not believe what ends up being rolled by the dice when we get to it. Seriously we did NOT plan this.

Ros is a great performer and we had no idea before we spoke to her that she had recently taken back up drawing. We dig into Ros' past a little and she explains how she got together with fellow university people to form the sketch based comedy group Up The Antics and now that she fronts the Bish Bash Bosh that you can see at the Bristol Improv Theatre.

Ros spills the beans on how prop cigarettes work and teases us with talk about the upcoming show she is working on called Level Up in co-ordination with the Unscripted Players. You can catch this on the 15th & 16th November 2019 at the Bristol Improv Theatre, see their website for more details.

Gwdihoo - Ep#12

Gwdihoo - Ep#12

September 6, 2019

This month we get spooky a little early with the talents of Gwdihoo (aka Goody Who). She is an awesome creative who has just become an art fair dad with the SUMMER SCREAM event. There is space in the world for spooky art fairs and so she set up the Ghoul Gang Collective along with her buddy Fruit & Bone. We get Goody to tell us what goes into having a tattoo apprenticeship and her influences. We go off on some pretty big tangents that take us through Christopher Robin as a horror movie, the works of Jan SvankmajerGrace Neutral, Ryu Murakami and his book In The Miso Soup and one particular bit of work by the amazing Junji Ito.

Harry Jones - Ep#10 - Part 2

July 5, 2019

This is part two of our two-part chat with artist Harry Jones. Here is where we roll the dice and make something up. See what we make out of the Dinosaur & Robot genres. We dig a bit into why Harry finds taking photos is incredibly helpful for him to use as reference material. Chris struggles trying to draw a tar pit and gives some dinosaurs some weird legs and Nathan shows us how robot aliens actually kidnapped all the T-rex's.

A huge thank you to Harry who was an awesome guest, we wish him well for all of his future projects and shall aim to keep an eye on what he produces.

We are going back to releasing one episode a month again so our next episode will be Friday August 2nd 2019.

Harry Jones - Ep#10 - Part 1

July 5, 2019

This is part one of our two-part chat with artist Harry Jones. Harry is a painter who enjoys making beautifully intricate pieces of art and has recently finished his third year at the University of West England (UWE). These pieces usually take quite a bit of time to finish and we chat about the process of creating such a piece and how recently the university lecturers have been trying to encourage him to be faster. You can't rush genius I say!. Part two is where we roll the dice and chat more.

Thunderchair - Ep#9

Thunderchair - Ep#9

June 21, 2019

We have the pleasure of chatting with Howard, Joe and Ferg who collectively call themselves Thunderchair for Episode 9. We begin by chatting about their new comic book launch event for Hyper Galactic Rockstar Champion: Royal Rumble. They have an interesting history of really long title names for their comic books. We talk about how they all met, what their influences are and there is a lot of silliness that happens. All of that is before we roll the cubes and somehow create a 70's style cop play starring a monster who is experiencing some sort of time shift.

Stephen Hayles - Ep#7 - Part 1

May 24, 2019

Our second episode for May and we have the pleasure of chatting to Stephen Hayles who is one of the directors of Upfest the biggest urban paint festival in Europe. We have split this episode into two parts because it was a long a chat and wanted to bring you as much content as we possibly could.

In the first part he takes us through what it's like to have a crazy dream come true and now be responsible for what we believe is a truly amazing daytime festival. For more information about the festival have a look at the Upfest website.

We cannot thank Stephen enough for coming onto our little Podcast, we think he is really inspirational. Look out for part 2 of this chat later on today and our next full episode will be out on June 7th.
