    Nathan Reidt- Ep. 147

    Nathan Reidt- Ep. 147

    This episode I interview Nathan Reidt. Nathan was a video game and digital FX artist for the film industry and (like me) got sick of it all and quit to focus on his own original artwork. We discuss having panic attacks on “Iron Man” and leaving the industry, being a skate punk, following your own art, drawing and oil paint techniques, painting from your head, painting monsters, the ills of social media and a lot more!

    Also: the Art Life update and I answer The 5 Questions.
