Tom Ray's Art Podcast is a podcast about trying to become a full-time artist.
Each episode I meet artists of all types and places in their careers. Beginners, hobbyists and professionals.
I'm Tom Ray and I started this show because I wanted to get back into making art and getting involved with the art community where I live in Madison, WI. And what better way to do that than to find artists and talk to them directly. I wanted to hear about how people create, promote themselves and in the meantime still manage their own well-being.

    René Gauthreaux: Instagram comic artist

    René Gauthreaux: Instagram comic artist

    René Gauthreaux has been creating autobiographical comics on Instagram this past year. But before that, he had gone out and tried a number of different things including starting a music zine and traveling to another town to break into the comic business. But there were things that stopped him along the way. He tells me the story about how it took really breaking down his fear of rejection to feel happy about the art he decided to make.

    Henrique Nardi: Graphic Designer & Type Educator

    Henrique Nardi: Graphic Designer & Type Educator

    Henrique Nardi is a Graphic Designer & Type Educator. I got the chance to meet Henrique while he was working on the Madison mural that was recently completed on Monroe street with another local artist Triangulador here in town.

    Since they were working I didn't really get a chance to talk too long with Henrique, so I thought why not have him on the podcast!

    We talk about other murals that he's worked on, fonts & typography as an art form, and his recent work on translating his favorite band's new book "Do What You Want: The Story of Bad Religion" to another language.

    Scott Pyburn: From comic art to making action figures

    Scott Pyburn: From comic art to making action figures

    Scott Pyburn is a person I actually met before on a previous season of the podcast. He was traveling with the Mighty-Con comic-book circuit.

    While drawing at his booth and selling original artwork and custom drawings he saw that toys were really a big draw at these conventions.

    After everything shut down this year and the conventions all closed he decided to try something he realized he was passionate about all along, making his own custom action figures under the brand Toyzaholiks.

    Bonus Episode: Tom Ray on the WFMU Radio Free Culture Podcast

    Bonus Episode: Tom Ray on the WFMU Radio Free Culture Podcast

    From 2010 - 2018 I used to do a show about creative commons and free culture music with a guy named Doug Whitfield called Music Manumit.

    Years ago we were interviewed on the WFMU podcast Radio Free Culture with Cheyenne Hohman. I found this episode the other day and thought it would be interesting because I talk about my support of creative commons for art and music.
