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.

I'm going to try and see if I can find out how this game was created, designed and why? Here is what I found out about this game https://candy-land.fandom.com/wiki/Candy_Land_Wiki Candy Land is a board game about children exploring a world made out of candy and other sweets that originally came out in 1949. In every version of the game, there are a group of children that go through Candy Land. In the earliest versions of the game, it was a realistically drawn boy and girl.
