You are beautiful.

I was out riding my bike the other day. For some reason, I decided to take a different path than I normally do.

On East Washington Avenue I saw three people, one of them was on a ladder. They were just finishing up what looked like a mural that said "You are beautiful" on it.

I stopped and decided to go ask them what it was.

Next month I'm going to be releasing a podcast about things just like this. It's called American Bandito.
The concept was this - I put up an ad on Facebook that said "Are you an artist in Madison? I would like to talk to you." And that was it. There was no pre-screening, people signed up and I scheduled an interview with them.

I wanted to know about people that are making art, people that are just starting out, people that are trying to get back into it.

I know very little about the art community that's happening in my own town and I wanted to change that.

Starting in August I'll be releasing those interviews. If you'd like to be notified when the episodes come out, sign up for the mailing list.

The person that I meet today I read about in the Isthmus. He was creating a stop-motion film with the students he teaches in his art class at Crestwood Elementary school. And the film they made was screened at this year’s Wisconsin Film Festival. After reading that article I kind of had to talk to him. How could I not? And he’s a musician too.

We decided to meet at the Monona Terrace during the Mini Makers Fair.

But the pop-up interview I’m going to play for you this week took place just a few weeks ago when Merijoy and I had visited Browsers Bookstore on state street. After meeting the woman that worked there we just had to come back and talk to her again, because she was kind of awesome.

Ivan Brunetti.

A year ago when I first read his book I never would have imagined this would happen! And I'm glad I do this comic because I always forget to take pictures for this kind of stuff.

It's funny to think I can actually have a group of online friends, people I will probably never meet. But I don't think of them that way.
