Episode 20 / Swallow the Frog: Tackle the important and uncomfortable in your creative practice.

December 5th, 2017 | 1 hr 27 mins

Our guest for this episode was… Sara Schnadt! Los Angeles in the house! Sara, Taylor, and Rob talk about tackling things we don’t want to tackle. We also chat about collaborating with non-artists and merging the work-life with the art-life. Mirrors are pretty cool, even in the 21st Century. It seems Colonel Sanders had a proclivity for the pistols. We also fit Daredevil and Systems Engineering into the conversation… somehow!

Taylor decides he should really get his archive situation in order before entropy wins the battle. Sara shares the thinking and re-thinking she’s been doing on her art practice after multiple moves, life changes and health hurdles. Rob spends two weeks creating a new sandbox for himself and decides he needs more road trash and hot pink in his work. WARNING: The phrase “mood boards” was used more than once during the recording of this episode.

Also, it is our 20th episode! Thanks to all our previous guests! You can hear a brief update from Meghan Trainor, Huong Ngo, Dan Bustillo, Federico Tobon, Matt Steinke, Kelly Coyne and Erik Knutzen (the Root Simple posse!), Violet Juno and Ranjit Bhatnagar on this episode!
