Ninja Mountain Episode 38 - Epic Chair Fail

Once again our crack team of ninjas... no wait, our team of crack ninjas...I'll come in again.
Image Hosted by

This week on Ninja Mountain: Robo Jeremy returns to introduce Patrick,
Socar, Jon, and Ralph, who discuss: Stuff! Stuff like: A single top tip for aspiring illustrators, good and bad qualities in art direction, defending your home against shotgun assassins, sketching, and Twitter.

You'll marvel as Socar takes the moderator's golden laurel wreath and takes charge. Gasp in amazement as Patrick swings from rope to rope, roll your eyes as Jon says "you know" a lot, and feel that funny feeling in your tummy like going over a hump backed bridge in the back of the car when you were a kid as Ralph breaks ranks and offers actual content.

Ninja Mountain special - Listener round table

It's a special middle-of-the-week episode, courtesy of Socar, who coordinated and recorded our first-ever listener round-table discussion. Joining Socar are Ninja Mountain regular Eric Lofgren, along with Mike Schley, Erika Harm, and Mary Layton.

(The sound quality is a bit rough here and there, but it's well worth it for the awesome discussion!)

Ninja Mountain 37 - The All-Necrophelia Episode

This week it's a big group indeed! Jon, Eric, Andy, Socar, Patrick and Jeremy all team up to answer questions about art school and job negotiations. And of course, the topics wander into many interesting areas. Very interesting. Very interesting and, let us say, "specialized". But it's all in good fun, and no corpses were harmed during the recording of this week's episode. Join us, won't you?

Ninja Mountain 36 - Barry Manilow

Ninja Mountain 35 - Crossover!

Welcome to another exciting episode of Ninja Mountain, this time with a big difference. No, we won't suddenly start to make sense or something - that's crazy talk. No, this time we are crossing over with Thomas James from the Escape from Illustration Island site and podcast. The first part of our day was devoted to Thomas trying to interview us (fat chance of that) for his podcast. You can hear that on his site soon. And the second part, which you'll hear here, was Thomas attempting to figure out how we still have a podcast when we are obviously too silly to do anything other than giggle at our own off-color jokes.

So! Let the fun begin! Thomas James joins Patrick, Andy, Socar, Jeremy, and the long-lost Jon for an episode of fun and information. We discuss Podcasting and social networking, and finish answering the questions from listeners that we began last week. So... Join us... Join usssss!!!

Subscribe on iTunes for free, just for the Halibut.
