After an extended break, we’re back! On this episode I met up with previous guest Marcelo Baez and newcomer to Pod Kembla, Pat Grant. Both of these fine gentlemen are comics creators, ambassadors, educators and all round great blokes. Another thing they have in common is their superb and iconic poster design; in Marcelo’s case in the form of the 3D Comic Gong poster that you may have seen around the traps earlier in the year, and Pat drew this years now infamous Yours & Owls Festival poster that has been plastered up and down the South Coast, even making its way as far as Sydney. They both gracefully agreed to meet me at Kürtõsh down at Globe Lane to talk about their craft, comics and design history as well as a little bit of life spruced in for good measure.
However, most importantly I wanted to talk with Pat about his spectacular book Blue, and the subsequent live reading/performance which is happening at the Arts Precinct in Wollongong on Thursday the 29th of September, as a part of the Yours & Owls Fringe Festival events. We also talked about the fellers current and previous projects, all of which you can find links to below. I suggest you check them all out. You can read Blue for free online, or you can purchase hardcopies online or anywhere quality books are sold. If you find yourself in the Wollongong and surrounding areas next Thursday, I strongly suggest you go along to the live performance of Blue and get yourself a dose of quality home grown artistic edutainment.
