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.

    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.

    ReVINYLized: Creating things from old records

    ReVINYLized is an account I've been following on Instagram that makes things out of old records and pop-culture items. I got together with Betty who makes all of these items herself and we talk about what she does and how this all got started.

    American Bandit: A Band Making Music In The Mid-West

    American Bandit: A Band Making Music In The Mid-West

    American Bandit is a post-hardcore band from Milwaukee WI. I got the chance to talk with them when they came through town to play a show at the High Noon Saloon. I'm a musician myself in the band Lorenzo's Music and I have been making music long before I started this art podcast. One difference about being in a band is it has the advantage of creating as a group. We talk about how working as a group can help as far as promoting yourself and planning and creating new things.

    Lindsay Kovnat: Animation, Illustration & Man Man Music Video

    Linsay Kovnat is an artist I reached out to online because of an animated video I saw she made years ago for the band Man Man. She's been living in New York and we talk about how she ended up creating this video and winning a Nicktoons award for it. Lindsay has also recently been working on a children's book.

    Mike Lroy: Murals, Spray Paint & Digital Media

    Mike Lroy: Murals, Spray Paint & Digital Media

    Mike Lroy is an artist living in the Madison area. I had seen his work and was very intrigued by what he was doing on his Instagram. What he was doing there seemed surreal compared to the mural and other artwork he had created around town. I reached out and got to meet him one afternoon at the coffee shop right outside of my train car on West Washington Ave.
