Jason Chester - Ep#49

September 3, 2021

Welcome to our only September episode as we are taking the rest of the month off to try and book some awesome people to finish the year off in style with any luck.

In this episode, we chat with Jason Chester, a creative artist who mostly does art for fun and not for money! We found Jason via Oxford Doodle Club who you may remember from our chat with Mat Roff.

It's a very tangent heavy episode where both Jason and us trundle down some conversation paths but we do still chat about creativity.

We can't thank Jason enough for his time. Remember to check out his work or his gaming podcast The Vault

Katie Fishlock - Ep#48

Katie Fishlock - Ep#48

August 20, 2021

Bristol-based artist Katie Fishlock is celebrating the joy of sexual pleasure and relationship with the self. Both provocative and playful, she is also challenging the boundaries of portraying sexuality in this often-complex world. A former Graduate of Falmouth School of Art (2008), she has worked extensively as a make-up artist and stylist within the fashion industry, including with Boy George and Alexander McQueen. 

When we got in touch with Katie we had no idea that she was going to turn the tables on us a bit in order for the interview to work for her current energy levels. Since we encourage things like spontaneity and experimenting with things we thought it would be really hypocritical to say no.

We chatted to Katie about her current work and draw what came into our minds or indeed into our fingers, we would love to see what you draw from this episode. You can catch Katie's work at Glitch in Bristol until the end of September 2021, go there, get your hair done and/or grab a coffee, lunch or something sweet.

RC Beiler - Ep#47

August 6, 2021

Greetings superfolk! We bring you a super-human episode of the podcast where we talk to Gamemaster and creator of the Masks and Mayhem podcast RC Beiler.

RC spoke to us at what was for him very early in the morning about why he decided to begin making a real play RPG podcast, how he met his victims/players, the value that playing an RPG with your friends has, the amount of time and effort that goes into the show as well as touch on beating yourself up for "not getting enough done". We understand this...100%.

Mike Garley - Ep#46

July 16, 2021

We managed to grab some time with Mike Garley, a very busy writer and lecturer. Mike has a huge back catalogue of work and has recently (at time of writing) completed the Kickstarter campaign for the Samurai Slasher Omnibus.

During our chat we dig a bit into the Our Final Halloween series, how Mike feels about giving artists notes on their drawings to help get the idea across and discover exactly what kind of podcast this isn't.

We can't thank Mike enough for his time, patience and joining in with our show.

Morrighan Corbel - Ep#45

Morrighan Corbel - Ep#45

July 2, 2021

Let us introduce the incredible artwork of Morrighan Corbel. We found her through Twitter somehow and we are incredibly glad we did. We think her artwork really portrays that feeling of aloneness, isolation and somewhat frustration. She also does pretty incredible pet portraits..

We loved chatting with Morrighan. It was really interesting for us to find out that as she has ADHD she tends to bill in terms of day rather than hours. We cannot thank her enough for the time she gave us and for the honesty she bought to the conversation.

If you are into folk stories, dark and beautiful art and/or enjoying RPG's then put Morrighan on your one to follow list.

PhaseChan - Ep#43

June 4, 2021

PhaseChan is another of those artists we found at True Believers (2020) and when we saw the Kraken T-Shirt she had (but sadly sold out of our size) we knew we had to talk to her at some point and here is that chat.

We dig into PhaseChan's work a fair amount, how birds are basically dinosaurs, Twitch, conventions and once again sing the song of praise around the world of fan art. We also chat about her delayed upcoming appearance at Upfest this year!

May 21, 2021

In this episode we chat to comic maker, storyteller and Design Director at Papertank Chris Baldie. Back in November 2020 Chris released a Kickstarter to fund his comic "We Said Goodbye to Gravity" and it was more successful than he imagined.

We had a lovely chat with Chris about his Space Captain series, being his own sales person and his disapproval of the Adobe subscription model.

During our creative bit we build an intergalactic library run by a generation of beetles, during which Nathan says the word "poop" a lot.

Shazleen Khan - Ep#41

May 7, 2021

We kick off May with another fantastic artist, illustrator and award winning comic maker Shazleen Khan.

We took a bit of a whirlwind tour through their history in the comic industry and how they get actual pleasure from the physical act of drawing. Shazleen has been working on their web comic BUUZA!! since 2019 and is enjoying using actual time as an element and making the reader commit in the long haul.

For our creative section we come up with a rhythm based game loosely connected to Pa Rapper the Rapper where the stars of the game are guiding a giant cosmic friendly bee to a safer place.

Gustaffo Vargas - Ep#40

April 16, 2021

We met Gustaffo Vargas in 2019 at Thought Bubble and he is is an amazing comic book creator who has been incredibly busy in 2020.

Not only did Gustaffo work on the really interesting Quarantine Comic by Jordan Thomas, he also worked on Skrawl: Comix Magazine and drew, funded, released his own work Puno. We chat to Gustaffo about his really busy year, his work, his incredible use of colour, inspirations and so much more.

Gustaffo started our story telling section wonderfully and you have to have a listen to see what we come up with.
