David Van: Running The Madison Makers Market Pop-Ups - Tom Ray's Art Podcast

On this episode of the podcast, I talk with David Van who runs the Madison Makers Market for artists, crafters, and creators. 

I had originally met David when I talked to him and his partner Meagan on the podcast about their company Tacocat Creations. Back then David had just taken over the Madison Makers Market.

Today I talk with David about what the Madison Makers Market is, how people can get involved with it, and what it's like to run your own series of pop-up events for creators and artists.

How I use one Gmail address for multiple Soundcloud accounts

Do you know the Gmail "+" trick to use one email for multiple accounts on one service? Here's a little trick I use that works for any service.  I talked about this on the podcast episode I did with artist Mortimur K . In this case, let's say I used up all the uploads I have for my free Soundcloud account . With this trick, I can open a new free account and use the same Gmail address.

Like, let's say mine is "tom@gmail.com". To be clear that is not my email. I wish it was, but this is just a short example.

Travel coffee - A silly Horsey Headface comic

There is a character I was messing around with a while back that I called "Horsey Headface" . How it started I was originally messing around with this as an idea for a children's book character. I drew it as a kid dressed in a cowboy getup in the vector program Inkscape in an old '60s children's book style. But then I decided to give it a horsehead. Horsey Headface Children's book idea But truthfully, by the time I was done, I didn't really do anything with it and felt like drawing it all out in a vector program took too long. Drawing it more cartoon-like I felt like trying to make the character goofier. So I was trying different cartoon-like styles. I drew this version of Horsey Headface tap dancing on the  Google Keep app  on my phone. Horsey Headface sketch from my phone I kinda felt like I would enjoy drawing the character this way a little more. Also, it wouldn't take me as long to do. I thought maybe I could even animate it so I drew a version o

Another reason I dislike winter.
