All the aspects of Internet relations, web behavior and our online personae are discussed in this episode, with Andy, Socar, Patrick, Jon and Jeremy. How do we approach this big wide world of web? Well, you may hear something new and perhaps even entertaining as we tackle a subject as huge as Cyberspace itself!

Ninja Mountain Podcast #16 - A bargain at half the price

This week it's question and answer with the panel as they wrestle some thorny beasts provided by Jon's Facebook friends and! "What brushes do you use in Photoshop?","can you give me email addresses of your favourite clients?", and "will you do me some work pro bono?" are all questions which will not be answered. Instead Ralph discusses shooting day for night, Jeremy shoots a man in Reno just to watch him die, Socar brings sexy back, and Jon edits the whole show to make himself seem much funnier than he actually is. As ever.

Actual questions covered: Bulk pricing? How many revisions? Why art? What music do you work to?

Ninja Mountain Podcast #15 - Cue the music!

In what is quite possibly our wackiest episode ever, Socar, Jeremy, Jon and Patrick attempt to discuss several important and weighty topics while trying not to laugh too much. Where do we see ourselves in the future, and how will we make it happen? What areas do we need to work on artistically and why? Can we manage to stay on topic for more than a minute at a stretch and why not? All these questions and more will probably remain unanswered in this senses-shattering FIFTEENTH episode!

I tunes, You Tunes, we all scream for iTunes!

** Quality Assurance note! There were some sound issues around 50 minutes in on this episode, where Socar was dropped out. We've been working on that and a fix will be up soon. So if you have the version where you can't hear some of the dialog, try re-loading after 8:30 Pacific time May 8. Thanks!

Ninja Mountain Podcast #14 - doing it in style

Hello all you artist-listening people! We're a little bit late this week, but we think it will be worth the wait, as Jeremy and Patrick are joined by South American Ninja Sam Araya and returning Ninja Anne Stokes. Our discussion concentrates on the care and feeding of your personal style. Can you work on it, and if so how? Can you change it around for different jobs, or do you want to? Also, we touch on the topic of the most important or memorable critiques we've received. Interesting stuff all around!

Or find us here on iTunes!
