Inking the Panthers...
Spending alot of time in the studio can drive you batty. Almost every artist has something happening in the background, t.v. radio, etc. With me it's music or podcasts. As a result of my long hours at the drafting table, I end up listening to alot of podcasts. Because most of them are art or comicbook related, there's one I listen to that stands out.
While the 2 hosts (Alex Robinson & Mike Dawson) are actually cartoonists by profession, this is not a comic book podcast. They just talk about there lives and observations. It's just the right blend of hilarity and pathos. They share a side of themselves they probably shouldn't and invite their listeners to do the same by asking them to go to their FB page and share their "douche chill moments". Occassionally they'll bring on guests and invite them to participate in the same self-deprecation, forcing the jocularity to near intolerable extreme. (did I just use the word jocularity? brrrrr. douche-chill)
Occasionally, I get inspired to do sketches of these characters. I did the first one when it occured to me that the hosts and 2 of the guests (Tony Consiglio & John Kerschbaum)could easily translate into the Flintstone characters. (right to left:Tony,Alex,John & Mike)
The second one you see here I did today after listening to episode 38. Give it a listen.
