SmereTactics: Woodcuts Are The Storybook - S05E03

American Bandito Episode Image

Sara Meredith and I have actually tried to set up an interview several times in the past year. I don’t know why we kept having trouble doing that. But we finally were able to sit down and talk.

She goes by the name SmereTactics and is a Madison-based relief printmaker and teacher. Her black and white woodcut prints have a bold visceral quality while the overlapping subject matter offers a nuanced perspective and layers of meaning.

Thinking back I feel like that show was the first to start doing that to wrap up multiple show storylines and then people began using it all the time.

Tim Togstad: Abstract Art and Letting Things Go - S05E11 American Bandito Podcast

Tim Togstad is an artist here in Madison who I actually met right outside of the train car that I'm renting that I'm trying to turn into my own business. He was loading in his paintings into the place next door. So I walked over to introduce myself.

His artwork is a style of abstract expressionism, using biomorphic forms with a liberal use of color. He creates paintings and drawings, sculpture and woodworking.
