The Cosmic Nod

May 21, 2020

The amazing artist Richey Beckett joins me on the Nod!
For those who don't know, Richey is one of the most well known and respected illustrators alive at the moment.  He's made posters for some of the biggest bands, movies and shows in the world as well as some of the coolest! Converge, Mastodon, Metallica, The Grateful Dead, Game Of Thrones, Lord Of The Rings... You get the picture.
This episode is deeply ironic in that when we first discussed doing it a few months back, Richey was in the middle of some big big changes.  As you'll hear him explain in detail, he was basically living a life of artistic isolation for the last 5 years and was about to go completely nomadic indefinitely shifting to pop ups, residencies and gallery tours.   And while that doesn't seem to be in the cards anytime soon this chat is a wonderful window into the mind of a constantly evolving artist.  
We talk about COVID-19 some but mostly we talk a lot about the life of an artist and the importance of change, challenge and improvisation.  We recorded this in the middle of March just as everything really started to kick off.   It was deeply therapeutic to have a long conversation right at the beginning of this wild time that is still currently unfolding.  I hope it gives you a similar light hearted escape that it gave to me.
