Episode 122: Los Angeles Comic Con

Los Angeles Comic Con is the expansive and fun final cap to each Southern California con year. This is the first time I’ve recorded at the event, so I spent some time talking with a handful of amazing artists, all of whom are creating wonderfully unique work. I asked each creator to share one movie that influenced them to be who they are and got some interesting answers I think you’ll enjoy!

Please be sure to visit the websites and social media for each of my guests, follow them, and buy some of their work! My thanks to all the artists and creators who took time out of their Con day to record with me! You’ll hear from:
