S03 Episode 5: Eli Quinn, Illustrator

Episode image card



Eli had contacted me through the American Bandito Facebook page. He's an illustrator and also tells me about work he's done as a 3D artist for game design. And it turns out he created the artwork for the Madison band Droids Attack as well as the artwork for their new microbrew from Ale Asylum. I got a chance to sit down with Eli in his neighborhood at the Barriques in Fitchburg.

Plus, in my pop-up interview this week I meet someone I already knew Sarah, and learn that she worked on a film that was in the Wisconsin Film Fest that I had no idea she was involved in called The New World Horror.

S03 Episode 7: American Trash, Graphic Design

I found American Trash while looking at stories located in the Madison area on Instagram. I liked the style. It reminded me of the type of skateboard art that has always appealed to me. I sent him a message and we ended up meeting each other at the Johnson Public House.

S03 Episode 6: Gavin Folgert, Animator

Listen: Apple Podcasts | RadioPublic | Google Podcasts | YouTube
I went to a local animation meet up in February and afterward Gavin had posted a stop-motion short he made on the meet up's Facebook event page. I've only made 2D animation and have always wanted to try stop-motion. So, I reached out to Gavin to learn more about what he does. He met with me at the Colectivo Coffee Shop on Monroe St. After the interview we got together and made this little claymation short film. https://youtu.be/lIOPX95zI2Y

Also, another one of my pop-up interviews, I meet fabric artist Stacy Stone.

Louis Prima.

The lyrics to the song "Just a Gigolo" by Louis Prima are actually really depressing sounding when you write them out. But damn if it isn't a fun song to belt out!
