Episode 117 - Support your local on-line persona...

In this episode, Jeremy and Socar discuss the phrase, "Support Your Local Artist".
We also briefly touch upon the maintenance of one's on-line persona.
Where is the line to be drawn?

We also offer humble critique of two recent pieces by the talented illustrator, Preston Stone.
Many thanks, Preston!
They were some fine work and we hope our thoughts were of use to you.

In this episode, Kieran, Socar, and Jeremy discuss their latest work.
Jeremy found a new toy ( a new brand of colored mud with which to play)!
Socar quit her job and is now an illustrator...though we are all pretty sure she was an illustrator all along.
Kieran faces the age old conundrum of being compared with another artist ( aren't we all).

Episode 113 - A Healthy Dose of Ninja

We're back with a long, rambling, super-cool episode full of STUFF! We're not even sure all of us will survive. But one thing's for sure - Ralph, Drew, Socar, Patrick and Jeremy will do their utmost to entertain and inform, even at the cost of our very lives.  In this episode we discuss conventions past and future, art technique, health, TV, and whatever else we happen to think of.

Episode 111--Let's build some character.

In this testosterone-soaked episode ( due to the marked lack of one Socar Myles)--Drew, Kieran, Patrick, and Jeremy discuss the manly topic of character design amongst other themes.
We also come together in celebration of our new regular crit feature.
Many thanks to Talantyre and Scott Johnson for putting their labors of love before our panel.
