This episode features an interview with Illustrator John Pirtle. As an award winning cartoonist, John's quirky and humorous Illustrations have been printed in every school newspaper he's ever attended (including Wichita State's where he received his degree in Studio Arts). A family man and Wichita native, John's home life also revolves around Illustration. His kids often help behind the scenes as critics and assistants, but when his son began struggling at school John took pen to paper and used art to ease his child's nerves. Talking points include, Avenue Art Days, John's art show at City Arts, and his daily lunch-note drawings for his son Sam.
