Episode 94: Long Beach Comic Con

Long Beach Comic Con’s Artist Alley is rich with amazingly talented people, each offering their own unique approach to the creation of art and merchandise for fans of pop culture. I recorded with a variety of these creators and asked each to share a movie that influenced them to be who they are today.  Please be sure to visit the websites and social media for each of my guests, follow them, and, perhaps, buy some of their work!
