The first “real” episode of the newly returned Escape from Illustration Island Podcast features an in-depth conversation with Martin Gee, Illustrator and Senior Art Director of TIME Magazine! We talk about some pretty interesting stuff like growing up Star Wars, that time he accidentally won an emmy, and then that other time he gave his pet snake to his best friend, kind of.

Oh, and plenty of illustration talk, of course! Martin proved to be an amazingly open and generous guest, and this hour-long episode is packed with music, insight and fun!

Pretty good one. Now I’m going back through and listening from the start.

Also, Thomas James was to be interviewed by Drawn & Drafted,, yesterday but due to technical issues, it will be rescheduled. Sign up for D&D’s enews to get an update of when this is rescheduled.
