It's another raucous interview with a couple of LA's most renowned screen printers! This time, Nick sits down in the live/work studio of The Little Friends of Printmaking to discuss their art, travels and print hustling lifestyle. Of course, we go over Melissa and James' midwest upbringings and then we discuss their college years at UW Madison and other influential moments in the early years when the couple met and fell in love with print and each other.
They talk about their travels through Japan where they've visited in recent years, and how their work changes shape to accommodate selling prints on the road. Recently the duo was hosted as the Feature Artisans at Disneyland's WonderGround Gallery. They share about their interactions with the public and the benefits of keeping in touch with their audience. With a popular style and the speed of information today, they have to keep their work fresh because it's one thing to make popular prints, but it's another to constantly stay ahead of the curve in our social media age. It's the pod's second interview in a row where we lament the greatness of gigposters.com.
And then there's the cat stuff, the glorious cat stuff.
