The Artist Round Table on Beyond the Playlist

Last Sunday evening,  I poured a cup of coffee, fired up my computation machine and an app called Skype(maybe you're heard of it) and was a guest on "Beyond the Playlist with J Hammond C" podcast.

Hammond was good enough to have me on as part of a round table discussion of artists, along with Alexandra Schoell, Don Kelly, and April Ness.  I was in great company.  The discussion that rolled off of that round table was a slice of fun and insanity that had us all laughing, nerding out about art supplies, patting each other on the back, and exploring how far we could push the line between appropriate and inappropriate jokes before Hammond would have to go in and edit for content.

A couple months earlier, Hammond gave us 5 topics for us to interpret and draw however we saw fit.  We are four artists with four distinct styles, so it was really great to see everyone's take on the topics and break them down and analyze them.  The topics and my takes on them are:

 "Dragon"


 "Happiness"


 "5-Character Superhero Team"


"Alien"


and "Self-Portrait"


These were just mine.  April, Alex, and Don all did excellent takes and had unique spins on these.  You can us carry on about all of them in the episode.

Thanks Hammond, Don, Alex, and April for a great time.  It was a lot of fun, and I am honored to be in the great artistic company of the Round Table...  it was a blast, let's do it again sometime!
