ttr_35_bannerI’ve said for years that comic art is truly art, and apparently, I’m not alone in this sentiment. Andrew Farago, the curator of the Cartoon Art Museum in San Francisco joins me in a really interesting discussion about the nature of art, what sort of stuff draws in the crowds, what cool stuff the Museum has in its vaults, the upcoming “Monsters of Webcomics” installation which is one of the first of its kind in the entire world, and a plethora of other subjects. (You heard me…a plethora.)  Find out where they get their art, how they come up with their installations, and what art Andrew would abscond with if he had to make a choice!

Don’t forget to check out Tall Tale Radio’s most excellent sponsors:

keenspot1 The great folks over at Keenspot, with their amazing new iPhone application and first comic foray into that world, “Marry Me!”

They also host the great Comics Genesis, for all your FREE Comic Hosting needs!  I’m going to be checking out the Keenspot presence at the upcoming San Diego Comic Con in a couple of weeks, so it’ll be time to meet the minds behind the madness.

xdm_cover1And also Howard Tayler, old friend of the show (hear his interview here) and creator of the terrific “Schlock Mercenary” has illustrated a new book written by Tracy and Curis Hickman called “XDM: X-treme Dungeon Mastery!“  It’s THE handbook for game masters of any sort, and a must-read for anyone who has, does or will ever run a role-playing game. Get it exclusively at!

Next Show: our foray into the Art World continues as I talk to the lovely Thea Cooke, creator of the site where she traces artists’ evolution from their early days to their current skills over at Artbloom.
