Show Notes

Writer's Room

Host Lindsay Preston Zappas is joined by Carla contributor, Travis Diehl to discuss his article from Carla Issue 14 called “Lynch in Traffic,” which discusses David Lynch’s transition from painter to filmmaker. They talk about the deskilled style of his painted works, where the resolution of his paintings is left unanswered in his films, and how his depiction of '50s-style clichés and traditional gender roles land in 2019. 


L.A. at Large

Lindsay is joined by L.A. art accountant Jim Walters to discuss all things taxes. Here, we discuss the complicated task of doing taxes as an artist, break down deductions, art trades, filing statuses, and common tax rules that artists unknowingly break.
