S03 Episode 5: Eli Quinn, Illustrator

Episode image card



Eli had contacted me through the American Bandito Facebook page. He's an illustrator and also tells me about work he's done as a 3D artist for game design. And it turns out he created the artwork for the Madison band Droids Attack as well as the artwork for their new microbrew from Ale Asylum. I got a chance to sit down with Eli in his neighborhood at the Barriques in Fitchburg.

Plus, in my pop-up interview this week I meet someone I already knew Sarah, and learn that she worked on a film that was in the Wisconsin Film Fest that I had no idea she was involved in called The New World Horror.

Progress on the music video I've been animating in Blender Grease Pencil

Going over how I've been animating this music video using Blender Grease Pencil I've been working on a cover of the song "Shore Leave" by Tom Waits . I've been animating this video in blender grease pencil and releasing it one line of the song at a time as YouTube shorts. I kind of wanted to go over how I'm doing it and also one of the problems I'm having that's actually made it really frustrating! Check out some of the scenes from the video -  Watch the first 3 scenes of my animation/music project
