It’s that time of year again. 

Way back in 2009 I decided I was going to start drawing after not picking a pencil for a good 10 years,give or take. If you’re an artist you know it can a solitary enterprise. Not saying that’s all bad, but it helps to have some company of sorts. Some background music, maybe the tv playing, or even,well, a podcast. If you’re going to be sitting behind a desk for long hours you need something to stimulate your mind.

After being referred to the podcast Tank Riot, I must say it’s been a constant companion in my artistic journeys thus far. When hosts Viktor,Tor and Sputnik asked the listeners to draw what they thought they really looked like, I had to indulge them. So every year I create a new one, and this year I used the Marx Brothers as inspiration. Don’t ask to explain what’s going on in the poster, just check out the other works on the Artistic License page. (There’s a great Marx Brothers episode you can listen to as well) This one’s for you gentlemen!

Introducing the Philip K. Dick Philosophical Podcast

23 Oct

  Say that five times fast. For your listening pleasure Weird Fiction Records is bringing you their latest venture, the Philip K. Dick Philosophical Podcast. If you didn’t know Dick  , he was and remains one of the world’s greatest science fiction authors. Even if you don’t know him, his works continue to be adapted into films including Total Recall, A Scanner Darkly,Next,The Adjustment Bureau,Paycheck, Minority Report,Screamers and most notably Blade Runner. All of which after his untimely death at the age of 53 in 1983. The quality of these films in no way suggests the quality of his prolific writings. However the man was a fascinating character whose themes resonate greatly even today. Along with Ray Bradbury, there was no other author that captured my imagination the way that PKD did.  More details to come as soon as I get the word from the esteemed electronic wizard Senator J1m (Adam Hulbert) who will be one half the of the podcast duo, along with Phil Young, and will provide sweet electronic soundscapes to accompany this epic undergoing. I myself just drew the logo above, but I will have to chime in some future episode.

UPDATE: Head over to Facebook to join the PKDPP group page and here to subscribe to the podcast.
