68 – Art & Comics w. Nick Ross

Edmonton writer/artist/podcaster/whatever else Nick Ross joins the show to talk about art and comics!

We discuss his hero’s journey of putting pen to paper, creating illustrations, movie posters, and written works. We go on many comic book-related tangents, while still managing to focus on why the medium is so artistically poignant and how it’s come to influence us as fans & creators.

Please check out Nick’s visual work, as well as his co-production, with friend of the show Devin Smith, Watchful Podcast

53 – Art, Representation, & Realism w. Patrick Higgins

Artist Patrick Higgins is with us to talk all about his art and his upcoming new show On the Green Seesaw.

We discuss the tension between realism & representation when creating a static image; we go over Patrick’s history as an artist; we also break down the ways in which you can create an engaged audience by obscuring features of your subject. All cool stuff.

Speaking of cool stuff, go search Patrick’s website for reference to what we’re talking about and what you could see at his new show!
