Escape from Illustration Island 83 – Martin Gee


[UPDATE: Want to get raw, unedited versions of these interviews a few days or so SOONER than everybody else? Want to know who the future guests will be? Want other cool perks? Click here to find out how!]

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!

    I’m a Young Gun wannabee. Thanks for making pertinent information about the illustration field fun.
