Mikes statement about the podcast.
From a young age people have been comfortable sharing with me their personal experiences and feelings. Over the past few years I began listening to podcasts such as This American Life, The Joe Rogan Experience, and Marc Maron’s WTF. As I began listening to Comedians tell their life stories. I thought it would be great to get to know visual artists better in this way. There was a lack of content out there, so I thought what better time to fill this void? So I did. I’ve recorded 80 episodes mostly focusing on visual artists and what led them into a creative lifestyle. This art show is to showcase their work and their stories.
Had some accidents with the art arriving at POrtland, the glass protecting the watercolors got smashed!I problaly did a shitty job at packing them (But I think I did a good job) so I guess USPS sucks and tehy throw stuff around a lot.
Thank to Matt at Hellion Gallery, he is going to get them fixed for the show and the artwork was unharmed.
