Creator Forge Podcast
About This Show
"What forges great professional artists?"
That's the simple question we try to answer every episode as we interview professional artists and promising young art students about what they do, how they do it, how they got to where they are now, and what advice they have for anyone who wants to do what they do.
We post interviews on the Second Monday of each month. Long interviews may be posted it in two parts on the 2nd and 4th Mondays of the month. Extra materials, like Geek Talk about movies and comics may be released on any Monday of the month.
