I suggest it.
I have just recently started listening to this podcast. Brian points out some very relevant facts regarding all sorts of aspects of being a visual artist. Such facts as the importance of a sketchbook, giving and receiving criticism, and what to do when you have artist's block. Some of the episodes are a little short, but they relay their point quite well. More recently Brian has started to include references with each cast. Many of them are great sites that I probably wouldn't have found on my own. If you are an aspiring artist, or even a practicing artist for that matter, you should pick this up and give it a listen.
Great podcast for creative types
SketcheeBook covers all sorts of creative topics in a really accessible way. He provides good and interesting information. I think anybody interested in art would enjoy this podcast - definitely check it out!
Short, sweet and to the point.
I listened to the first podcast and liked it so much that I downloaded all of them. Very insightful, professional, and to the point without being pretentious. I want more please.
