Jake Jensen

American Bandito episode image This week I meet Jake Jensen.

Jake is a house painter that has the luck of being able to use an endless amount of art supplies thanks to his job. He recently changed the entire concept of what he makes because of an obsession he has with something smaller.

S03 Episode 11: Luke Bassuener, Art Teacher

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.

Now hiring.

When they take it down I bet I'll still look for it.

Sayings.

It kinda made me a little sad when he told me.
