    Episode 61: Peter Van Dyck Drawing Discourse

    We are proud to present a special Drawing edition of Suggested Donation Podcast, in collaboration with the University of North Carolina Asheville. As part of their 12th Annual International Contemporary Drawing Exhibition, we recorded a conversation with our friend and one of our favorite artists, Peter Van Dyke. The conversation focuses on drawing; both defining it and discussing how we think about it. As always, Peter is insightful and hilarious and, he is our first returning guest to record a second Suggested Donation Podcast. We want to thank Peter for joining us, Tamie Beldue from the University of North Carolina Asheville, and Trekell for their continuing support of the podcast. We hope you enjoy this special edition!

Podcast closest to my heart

I realized this when I had to pick something to listen to while my dentist transformed a molar I was born with (and rather attached to) into a molar sculpture (otherwise known as a crown.) I listen to many other podcasts and audiobooks, but it was these two whacky guys, interviewing the immensely fascinating Tony Ryder, that had me so captivated that the process going on in my mouth was no big deal. Please continue the mayhem and wisdom Ted and Tony!
