The interviewer, Wil Moss, asked me about the drawing
I made for a colleague's wife's birthday,
that I talked about a bit in a piece that ran in POP!
The drawing above is a recreation of the piece in color.
And below is a direct scan of the original.

Bo Diddley is gone. I've never said much about what the Boom'r Band might sound like. I've always saifd that the Boom'rs sound the way you want them to sound. That's what I told Robert, Indigo, and Erica when they asked about it for the Beanworld mini-animation. That's what the Boom'rs sounded like to them and so, that it was the proper accompaniment for their piece.

with me about a wide array of topics.
Click on the above link to hear it.
I kick in after the two minute mark of the stream after an ad for their sponsor, Team Epic. I really enjoyed this interview, including the parts about my tenures at Image Comics and McFarlane Toys. Even though I'm no longer affiliated in any way with either of those crews, I am still quite clear in what I accomplished (or fell short of) during that period of time in my life--almost 15 years.
But of course, my favorite thing to talk about is Beanworld. Of note is the behind-the-scenes, sit-com-like moment at the time marker of 22:27. I'm trying to explain the premise of Beanworld. One of my cats, Abby, decides that she is hungry and audibly meows while she was rubbing up against the phone handset. I can "hear" myself rolling my eyes and going off balance in mid-explanation as I'm shushing her away. I'm talking about Beanworld's food chain and Abby is also discussing with me her agenda of the moment which is MY participation in HER food chain!
This link takes you to the podcast feedback page of the website. The posters go off into a fascinating comparison of Beanworld with Fraggle Rock . I can not for the life of me ever remember this comparison coming up before, and obviously I was too old at the time that it ran on TV for it to have caught my notice. But I find this notion intriguing. I'm going to have to chase down the DVDs and give them a look-see.
Anyway, my thanks to the gang at Comic Geek Speak for the opportunity.
On another note: Check out this link too....for something completely different.
