CI 201: Fries in a Cup

Just a catch up show with a little mail bag, some catch up of how things are going with Chris’ new business and a few other odds and ends.

We hope you enjoy it!

Chris blows the opening by double-clicking on his Wacom tablet, and then the dynamic dou lament the loss of several episodes of season 1.


Letter from @DavilaDraws:
We open with a letter from freelance illustrator and designer, Topher Davila from http://inkedideas.com/ and http://daviladraws.com/

Chris’ wonderfully tom-boyish wife interrupts the recording to ask if they can go out for 5 Guys Cheeseburgers after Chris finishes recording.  Find one near you:
