- Episode 38: Jackie Lewis. Here we go with another past student of mine. Ive watched Jackie go from zero to graphic novelist in a couple of years. Her story is the most amazing success story I’ve come to know in this industry. What i like best about it is that she did it all based on her hard work. Nothing else. Thats refreshing. Her story is… well, you’ll see. Rather, you’ll hear… if you listen to this episode of Inkpulp audio.
- Episode 37: Eric Canete bring us into 2015. Year three. I don’t know how to feel about this. I’ve been going for three years. I don’t think i’ve ever really figured out why i do this or what do i expect to get out it. I do know this, i enjoy it. I enjoy having intimate conversations with friends and colleagues. I like the connection. I also like that listeners get to feel that connection. It’s strange to me that something as unreal as the internet can offer us something so real. It’s what i got me into listening to podcasts, and why i do one. So, maybe i do know why i do this. Maybe i’m just an idiot. Maybe.
Episode 36: Matteo Scalera is back! Yes, you’ve waited a long time for more Poop talk with Teo. Late time, we lea red about “The Perfect.” This time, it’s all about “The Tarzanelli!” There’s a lot more to this episode, but I’m leading wit the sensational stuff.
Episode 35: Sean Murphy, Volume 2. A few months ago, Sean asked me why I hadn’t had him back on. He was one of my first guests, and a good friend. I told him that I I didn’t want to impose on him, knowing how busy he is and how popular he’s become. I didn’t want him to feel obligated as a friend to do this. I did want him on , frequently, but didn’t want to be another parasite on his side. Sean, being a good friend, told me I was an idiot for thinking he’d be to busy for me. Why am I telling this story? Well, it speaks to my insecurities. More importantly, it speaks to Sean’s character. He’s a loyal friend. As successful as he is, as talented as he is, that’s not what most important to him. He cares most about the people who are really close to him. So, before you think you know him, based on his internet rants, take a step back, don’t hate, and listen to this episode. You’ll see, deep down, Sean is a true ass hole. I KEED! Enjoy.
Will I be able to preview before it goes up?
Episode 34: Dennis Calero, part 2. I really enjoyed this two part conversation with Dennis. He’s honest and not afraid to be himself. He likes to have discussions with people he doesn’t agree with. Thats so god damn refreshing. In the vapid internet landscape of intolerance and venom it’s nice to be reminded that we don’t have to all agree on everything and that we should respect everyones right to their own opinions. Lets all try and be better about that. If you don’t like that idea, well, FUCK YOU.
Episode 33: Dennis Calero, part 1. My wife is sitting here, next to me, watching “House Hunters.” This fucking TV show. People who have too much money complaining about a 4 bedroom house having an “unpleasant” entrance. ” one sink in the kids bathroom? That’s not going to work.” “The kitchen doesn’t have an island?!” FUCK YOU! Once, I’d like to see their reality collapse in front of the camera. Now THAT would be a show I’d want to see! I’m tired people, tired and cranky. I just can’t stand to listen to people complaint about bullshit when there’s real problems out there. Kind of like… Yeah, this podcast. Fuck off. Enjoy this episode with Dennis Calero. Once we got going, we recorded 2 episodes worth of chatter. Enjoy!
Episode 31: David Marquez. I’m crazy. Seriously, I’m crazy. I know this. I’m full of insecurity, anxiety and anger. Some days it’s bad, some days it’s ok. I work hard on finding a balance, an even place. Today, I’m failing at that… Hard. Maybe this Cheddar and Caramel popcorn will help. It always does. Have you had this Chicago mix popcorn? ITS CRACK, And I love it. See, i am crazy. Like Charlie Brown said, ugh. I’m joined by David Marquez on this episode, the last of my doppelgänger conversations. This episode completes the Bearded Mediterranean looking contingency of comic book creators. Enjoy.
Episode 30: Andrew Maclean. I love people like Andrew. People who will not take no for an answer. People who have a vision that they cannot be returned from. People who find a way to make it happen for themselves. People who embody the spirit of punk rock. Andrew decided he wanted to make comics, so he did. Sound simple? Well… Just listen to this episode dammit!
HEALTH INSURANCE!!! Thats what I’m doing, buying health insurance because I’m now a full time freelancer. I don’t want to get involved with the media fueled toxic debate over government health care, but i will say this… For me and my family, it looks EXTREMELY affordable and has solid coverage. We’ll see where it goes from here. Im busy drawing and really enjoying where i’m heading. Im working on myself, and i feel like I’m making progress. Tomorrow i may feel different. Next month i may feel VERY different. Im fucked. I realized recently, I’m Charlie brown trying to kick the football, BUT, there’s no Lucy pulling it out from under me. Im doing it to myself. Im my own worst enemy. Ugh. In this episode I talked to Andrew Robinson. He’s an extremely impt figure in my development as a cartoonist and a very close friend. Andrew doesn’t open to many people. What you’ll hear in the episode is rare in depth and personal conversation with one of the best artists to ever make comics.
