The Creative South Podcast focuses on the “people” behind the design. The best way for us to do that is to talk to people and listen to them share their stories. Not necessarily the stories you hear from the stage, but ones you get when you actually have a conversation with someone. We want to have conversations not only with the presenters and people hosting workshops, but the vendors and attendees. We also want to talk to other creative people, not just the designers, illustrators, and photographers, but the developers, writers, musicians, comedians, chefs and anyone else that uses their creative talent. It's not about being from the South, that's just where we live!
If you have suggestions for guests or questions about the show, please reach out to us on Twitter @creativesopod or @jfrostholm, or shoot us an email at jason at creativesouth dot com. #Hugnecks
Welcome to the Creative South Podcast! I’m your host, Jason Frostholm. This special bonus episode was recorded live at Weapons of Mass Creation. Dylan Menges joined me in the balcony of the State theater lobby for a short conversation about being a competitor in ink wars and the importance of drawing with your hands instead of just the computer, all right after this.
Podcasting can get expensive, with hosting costs, upgrading equipment, and traveling to events, not to mention the lavish lifestyle of Champagne and Caviar, 6000 thread count sheets and entourages. That’s why we’ve started a Patreon page where you can help support the Creative South Podcast and our extravagance. When you become a Creative South Patron, you’ll get access to exciting Creative South News before anyone else, Creative South Podcast stickers and T-shirts, and you could even get your own podcast episode. So, please, help support the podcast by becoming a patron over at patreon.com/CreativeSouth.
