During art school we are constantly inundated with artists and their work, and during this time we are most focused on how we can stand out, be different or position ourselves as an original. For most of us, that marked difference between us and our mentors and influences never really happens. We kind of look like the people that came before us in some ways. But maybe that isn’t so bad.
This week Ryan and Garreth sit down in the studio to talk about the people and things that make us what we are and how hard it is to actually lie about where we come from aesthetically.
Also, we’re just one away from episode 100. Thanks for hanging on for the ride!
