We got to spend a little time in one of Michael's workshops at Artfest, and it was great to see how much fun people were having and what amazing things they created. I've talked to Michael several times--he's in Living the Creative Life--and he's always planning something new. Today he talked about the New Orleans workshops he's planning with Kathy Malkasian, of Valley Ridge. Man, that's somewhere I'd like to be, for sure.
The podcast is almost an hour long. The audio is OK but not great--it never sounds quite as good when a cell phone is involved, but then, a cell is better than iChat, which gives really lousy audio. You can hear it just fine, though, so hop over to his website so you know what it is he's talking about, and then settle back and enjoy the podcast. Then you'll want to check out his new book, Dusty Diablos: Folklore, Iconography, Assemblage, Ole! his previous book, Secrets of Rusty Things: Transforming Found Objects into Art, and my book that he's in, Living the Creative Life.
As always, you can listen by clicking on the button in the little player at the end of this post, or you can download the podcast by subscribing to Notes from the Voodoo Lounge in iTunes, or you can click over there in the sidebar to go to my podcast blog page at libsyn.com (or you can just click here). How much easier could it be, really?
