Maps, vellum, more maps, constantly pushing yourself, and pizza ... in that order. I'm talking to American artist Shannon Rankin who is currently at a residency in Roswell, New Mexico.

Stunning landscapes created using Icelandic wool, chocolate cake, and blue milk! Canadian-Hungarian artist Eszter Burghardt is my lovely guest today.
Murals, cosmic animal gloves, and goosebump-inducing wisdom. Yep, just a taste of my conversation with LA-based artist Bunnie Reiss. PS, I want my name to be Bunnie.
Seventy-seven episodes in, today is something brand new ... this was recorded at an event in Portland last week! Lisa Congdon and I hanging out at Hand-Eye Supply with a live audience. We talked imposter syndrome, ego, inner critics, and well, ART.

Mean girls, "Mystery Twins", and so much perfect found paper I can hardly stand it! Vancouver based artist/illustrator Ryan Heshka and I also covered important topics like underage drinking in barns on the Canadian Prairies.
"Drawings are like wine - they need time to develop." Lovely words from a very talented, smart, poetic, funny artist who I might just have a major girl crush on. Berlin-based artist/illustrator Tina Berning is on the podcast, and I'm pinching myself.
Reimagining natural history, dealing with lulls, and making art with an insane amount of candy-colored resin. Melbourne-based sculptor Kate Rohde is my guest today.
