Hello again, listeners.

I finally got a chance to run by StudioWorks since their expansion—and it looks great. I just stopped in to grab some photos and look around. I haven’t been in a while, so I thought it was about time again.

Some of the pieces I photographed were works by Jeremy Smith.

Jeremy’s art style is rich with comic book influences as well as animation and fantasy art. His creativity was encouraged by artistic family members and friends from an early age. He has been making work professionally at StudioWorks for about eight years.

Jeremy’s methods are mostly tradition pencil and ink, though he has dabbled in using digital technology to enhance some works. The subject matter of his work mainly is made up of hyper muscular individuals, superheroes, and the sort.

Jeremy hopes one day to do his own comic, or at least get his fan art in the back of someone else’s. I feel he is on the right path—he has made his own ‘Yu-Gi-Oh’ cards, greeting cards, and of course several large scale pieces housed at StudioWorks.

You can visit StudioWorks at Zoomgroup.org or the StudioWorks Facebook page to learn about Jeremy and the rest of the crew.

You can listen to our chat below.

Enjoy guys.

Happy Odin’s day, listeners!

Let me start off the post with a quick apology to you the audience, and Mrs. Keane. You may notice an annoying sound now and again throughout the interview. For those of you who use recording equipment often, you’ll recognize this sound…the sound of a cell phone trying to get signal. Sadly it wasn’t possible to totally remove it. Lesson learned, I guess. Always wear your headphones…

Anyhow, let me introduce today’s interviewee. Erin Keane is an author working on her third collection of poetry, host of the WFPL program Unbound, Co-founder of the InKY Reading Series, instructor for creative writing courses for the National University, and so much more. To learn more about Erin, I’ve provided various links for your convenience.

Thank you for the support. And, as always, thanks for listening!!
