Bullshit Artists!

Poet Christopher Luke Trevilla and your truly. We took our handsome pills that day!

Hey Minions!

My guest today is Christopher Luke Trevilla the Poet! Today marks his second appearance on the show.

CLT and I go deep into the artist’s rabbit hole as we  ponder the artist’s compulsion to coalesce the vapors of human existence into a viable and meaningful comprehension.

Tune in to the show to hear Chris and his philosophy on, well, just about everything!

This is a good one!




Running on Empty.

I’m so sorry that I have been lagging on the podcasts. I’ve been really busy and I refuse to hack out the show. I f I can’t put the same  level of care that you have all come to expect from me I won’t do  the show. There’s nothing worse. than listening to a podcast with crappy production value.

Something had to give because…..well,   Let’s just say the last couple of months have been INSANE!

Get a load of this.
My Storyboard Supervising/Animatics Director gig on season 2 of Lalaoopsy has been intense! We are jamming on season 2 I am proud to say!
Shout out to Kris Heller my assistant as well as our intern Kristen Bell! Ladies you are kicking ass!

Then I had to prep for The San Diego Comic Con.

I managed to do it with out letting it affect my work.  Plus I was dealing with more stuff as you shall soon read.

I have Eight! Count them Eight, Animated Television Episodes in various stages of production that I have to keep an eye on!

So what happens,  the worst thing possible.


“Didn’t you back it up Raul?” you may be asking.

Uhhh, I thought I was.

I had programmed my external HD to  to automatically back up my work.

I lost everything I did in 2013.

I guess I didn’t do it right.
Homer Simpson pretty much captured how I feel about my loss in this video.

The layered PSD’s of my paintings I did for this year’s San Diego Comic Con  were lost.

So I took the drive in to be rescued and my buddy Ed at Over Night PC Repair   where he  tried for 4 days to recover my data.

Ed managed to pull 80% of it. Tragically  the newest stuff wouldn’t come up,  I was in shock. It’s difficult to describe it was like panic, rage, and denial all at the same time. I was overwhelmed emotionally by this big time.
7 months of writing, drawings, paintings, sketches, jokes, comics, character designs and a short I was developing are gone.
I had no choice but to buy a new PC, . I’ve spent the last 2 weeks sleepless trying to get all of my stuff back and
I lost all of my personal art for 2013. I’m still trying to come to terms with that.

Then if shit wasn’t bad enough,

Then my web-host starts fouling up and Man vs. Art was offline for almost a week! I’ve now switched to LibSyn.com for my hosting needs. They seem to specialize in Podcasts, because believe it or not regular web hosts can’t deal the bandwith suckage that comes from hosting audio and video files. Apparently we hit that number of downloads thanks the almost 10,000 of you loyal minions out there getting your Man vs. Art fix with every episode! Next time I say we break to web servers!

This was all happening at the same time!

But I managed to salvage  PNG Files  of my mic Con Prints.
Check them out. They should be up in the Man vs. Art store withing a couple of  weeks.
