You bastards were talking about Mervyn Peake without me? BASTARDS!

Oh...I managed to keep from swearing for (almost) the whole show, and now I f* it up on the blog. Pff.

Jon said...

We barely scratched the surface of Senor Peake, beyond a mention so lets have a proper in depth chat about him on another show? Lots to talk about!

Four pints of Bulmers, for the price of three sounds like a good deal! That pub looks nice too!I'm jealous me!
Nice podcast guys!

Interesting tales of what jobs you guys had to back out of, and fun interview with Ben Wootten. It must have been something to see Alan Lee and John Howe work... O__o

I had a bit of trouble making out the conversation in the pub, but that's to be expected with a show in that venue.

Already looking forward to next week!

Oh, and thanks for recommending Big Illustration Party Time! I've been listening to back eps all week. :)

Great show, as always! I especially like the part where you mentioned my name and my blog :O)

Thanks a million!!

Hi Guys and Gal,

Great to hear this weeks episode. I enjoyed the variety of the different sections.

It was good to hear about Ben's experiences of working on LOTR and films in general.

The pub venue made a refreshing change, and I think I may have been there too (if my recollection of Jon dragging me, willingly and drunkenly, round Edinburgh is correct!) :)

Another Winner for sure!

I must say the part where Jon and Ben described their own issues with doing purely personal work was so reassuring to hear!

Oh, and Patrick, my copy of Rendering in Pencil came in, and I must say, damn, I'm glad I got it. Thanks!

Hey Mu Young! I'm always glad to evangelize that book, and any book by Arthur Guptill.

In fact, I've got a few others by him that are great. "Rendering in Pen and Ink" is indispensable! I've also tracked down old copies of "Color in Sketching and Rendering", "Freehand Drawing Self-Taught" and "Oil Painting Step-By-Step", which is signed by the author!
