Man vs. Art Episode 75! Simpsons artist Luis Escobar, Crucial Art Advice, and an Epic Facebook Fail.
Luis is an old friend of mine from my art school days. We both got jobs in the animation business at about the same time in 1994. I went to Walt Disney Feature Animation and Luis got on the Simpsons where he still works today as a storyboard artist. Luis is obsessed with drawing and has developed his own theories about drawing at his new site The Drawing Website www.thedrawingwebsite.com , a place specifically created to help teach people how to draw. Then the next segment of the show is the story of a young artist in search of the answer to the eternal question of every artist. How do I become a better artist? His journey takes him to the ends of the globe where he meets the Old Wiseman of Art Mountain. Finally I wrap the show with a story about a bad experience I recently had on Facebook.

On today’s show the subject is Poetry.
These days the poetry has some lousy stigma attached to it. Most people think poetry is only for greeting cards and angsty teens who like to cut themselves. I happen to love poetry with a passion. A truly great poet can touch your soul, cram volumes of truth about the human experience into just a few lines, and make a you rethink your views of life. Let’s see a Hallmark card do that.
My guest today a very talented young poet named Christopher Luke Trevilla. Chris refers to himself as a ” Stand-Up Philosopher”. Chris said “As a Stand-Up Philosopher I coalesce the vapors of human experience into a viable and logical comprehension. You know, a bullshit artist!”
