The Pencil Pusher's Podcast

Welcome folks to Episode 53 of The Pencil Pushers Podcast. In this convo, I speak to educator, painter and photographer, Nancy Carty. She also happened to be my high school art teacher. Nancy has been on my mind for a while to showcase on the podcast because of her art education background, steering budding creatives into a life in the arts for 4 decades. You can imagine there was plenty she’d learned and taught in that time. Nancy is perhaps not your average teacher. She grew up in Saudi Arabia, as an American child living in the middle east. This helped inform her roaming spirit and a love...

Welcome Leadheads to another episode of the pencil pushers podcast. I’m your humble host, Mike Rosado, and I’m really excited to share with you my conversation with the uber-talented illustrator, Ricky De Los Angeles. Ricky is currently a character artist for Disney products, where he gets to flaunt his multi-versatile artistic stylings for all of the characters we’ve all grown up loving. Listen in as talk about a day in the life of a character artist, his love for caricature art, how he stumbled along the way like most artists to “make it” and what he’s learned along the way about how to succeed in this hyper-competitive industry. I’ve loved getting to hear his story and I think you will to - this is a fun one, folks, so sit back, relax and enjoy our chat with Ricky

 

The Pencil Pushers Podcast is a celebration of the hand-drawn arts. I’ll be interviewing friends and idols in illustration, animation, comic-art, and more.
