Do some artists fall back on their technical skills to ignore the necessary marketing and sales work in their goal of making it? That’s what we tackle on this week’s minisode! Some actual tips and tricks tucked away in this episode(don’t say we never helped ya) so if you’re beginning your art career, this is one you want to check out!
Sergio recaps his birthday trip to Tahoe with Vanessa, and what he learns by painting in plein air so much, Josh talks about some of the meaning behind his latest painting, the documentary “Last Chance U” and the danger of too much praise, making them hits vs. just practicing, finding the “game within the game” to keep painting interesting, painting urban landscapes, and why Cardi B should have a Pulitzer Prize.
Josh and Sergio discuss composition! How they think about it, how they tackle it, the difference for Sergio between composing a landscape and figurative piece, what makes a bad composition, and if shrooms can help you compose better!
Sergio recaps his Oregon travels with Vanessa, Josh amends his “rich people like shiny stuff” theory, painting under a pseudonym(or a cinnamon), if mental issues help with creating good art or successful artists, if artists should big-up themselves more, the art world needing better ambassadors(and why David Choe ain’t it), we rate a bunch of art memes, and end with a discussion around juggling time per piece vs. cost in order to make a living as an artist, and if The Triplets Of Belleville is a good movie.

Go make your favorite drink and play along!
Article where we got the bad reviews from:

Josh talks his experience with painting murals in Portland, his problem with Blackout Tuesday, the need for a real leader in this era, Thinkspace versus Colin Chillag and the resulting fallout, Nicolas Uribe versus companies who make “flesh tone” paint, and more. Josh talks about Sergio’s magazines he shared in the last episode and they discuss self-censorship, we respond to a listener question about if “remakes” are allowed in the art world, finding treasure in Yellowstone, looking for solutions, more thoughts on the Colin-Thinkspace controversy, comedians acting and more.
#101 Tony Guaraldi Brown, Vanessa Walsh “Good Job Keep Going”
While Josh is up in Portland working on a mural with MJ, Sergio and Vanessa do a show with their good friend Tony Guaraldi Brown! They talk about how Tony’s name is constantly butchered, the local scene holding up through quarantine, extol the virtues of gouache, wonder if James Gurney is spawning a master-race of artists, Hokusai’s tasty waves, and more. They each brought in oid artwork and then analyze how they have evolved as artists and what has been a constant from then to now. Tony brings in work from the last two decades, and Vanessa brings in a drawing she made when she was 16. Sergio blows everyone’s mind by bringing in zines he made when he was 9 and 12, and we get deep into his childhood nerdom! They discuss how much story to share in an image, what you can do vs what you want to do, and much more. Find Tony at www.tgbart.com and Vanessa at compassroseartistry.com.
