Episode 20! Artist, designer, and technologist Joshua Davis joins Chuck to talk about life, work, changing technology, and everything from his earliest beginnings to his latest endeavors. Josh is truly one of the pioneers of digital art and a huge influence on an entire generation of artists. Josh and Chuck have known each other for about 10 years but this is the first time they've ever really kicked back and just talked in a non-client-project capacity, and it was a lot of fun. Friendly disclaimer: More swearing in this episode than usual. Hell yeah.

This is Foundation for designers and creatives
If you're a fan of the style that Kevin Rose host's Foundation, this is in that fashion. Chuck Anderson takes a personal approach to his interviews going beyond the normal ho-hum questions normally asked in interviews of designers and creatives. All I could ask for in the future is a video edition and more 'live' in studio interviews. Please keep going Chuck!
Awesome behind the scenes look at some amazing creatives.
All designers should listen to these.
