    Frank Kozik "Punk Rock Warhol" - Remembering Kozik With Special Co-host Jermaine Rogers

    In this heartfelt episode, join us as we pay tribute to the legendary Frank Kozik, a creative genius who left an indelible mark on the world of art and pop culture. Hosted by a special co-host, Jermaine Rogers, we delve into the life and legacy of Frank Kozik, who sadly passed away last year at the age of 61. Kozik's impact on the art world was immense.
    Known for his contributions as "The Modern Gig Poster," a master of vinyl toy design, and a relentless explorer of pop culture's depths, Kozik's journey resonates with Andy Warhol's mantra: "Good Business Is The Best Art." Often referred to as the "Punk Rock Warhol" by Sheppard Fairey, Frank Kozik succeeded at everything he tried, and that's why his absence feels so profound.
    In this episode, we explore how Frank Kozik's art and legacy will continue to inspire and captivate future generations. We extend our gratitude to his partner Sharon, Scott Tolleson, and, of course, our amazing co-host, Jermaine Rogers, for joining us in this tribute to a true creative icon. Join us as we celebrate the enduring impact of Frank Kozik's art and remember the man who made it all possible.

Better than Art School

In one month, I learned 100x’s more about running a creative business from this podcast than I did earning my BFA over 4 years at Pratt Institute!

If you want a deep dive, this podcast is for you

so many podcasts and youtube channels are great for news and surface level discussions, but Brickey’s attention to detail, storytelling, and breaking down topics piece by piece is truly top tier. You can tell his love for the parks runs so deep, he is incredibly knowledgeable, and every episode feels like a chat with a friend. Thank you for all your work here and on your youtube channel, Brickey! Your work and dedication is inspiring and brings me and my family so much joy.

Futureman37 ,

Real talk about turning your daydream into your day job.

Relatable interviews and advice about being a creative looking to make your daydreams your day job which is why I started listening. Why I became a loyal listener is because of Mark and his buds’ ability to make you a part of a daily conversation amongst friends taking about not just being a creative but also a person, a spouse, a partner, a friend, an employee(or not), etc navigating today’s world. 5 out of 5 Brickeys.
