Josh and Sergio ramble about the Super Bowl, Sergio gives an update on the gouache course and a sketch box he built, and they discuss a Youtube video they watched about business for artists. They talk about what they got out of the video such as how your personality relates to your natural salesmanship, limiting beliefs around making money, learning pricing from selling merch, and competing with dead artists for market share. We end by discussing how “art means what you want it to mean” is a cop-out.

More Episodes

For this mammoth episode, we go to Bagger43’s place and talk to him about growing up in military bases all over the Pacific, studying at Ringling, and more. He turns the table on us and gets to know us better too! Him and Sergio compare art school experiences, and graffiti influences with Josh. We discuss how we discover artists, how we ended up on our paths, fashion design, budding entrepreneurialism, conventions, and more. Bagger then asks us where our themes came from and why we use the mediums we do, and how he started using gouache. This was a super episode jam-packed with good conversation. Check out his solo show at First Amendment Gallery in San Francisco!
