    Yay! Been waiting! Been looking around trying to find other art related podcasts, now that you’re fortnightly, but there’s nothing nearly as good out there, EFII rules! Congrats, I’ll just have to keep waiting :] Now, to find time to listen…

    I agree – by far the best podcast around! I haven’t even listened to this one yet (am about to now) but was so happy to see the new podcast up :) Thank you!

    Thanks guys. I definitely understand how hard it can be to wait, especially after being weekly for so long. Thanks for your patience, and thanks for listening! Hope you enjoy this one.

    Fantastic! And having met Edel, I can say that he is also a great person and very easy to talk to. It’s no wonder that his work is everywhere.

    Another great interview Thomas .. Great hearing about Edel’s background and experience as an art director.

    I’m grabbing this one off the iTunes and am saving it for a flight to hell later this week. That way I can ignore the fat drooling kid and the guy reading golf magazines next to me while Edel and Thomas drop science at 30,000 feet.

    Thanks guys, looking forward to it.

      10 bucks says you see an Edel piece in that golf magazine the guy next to you is reading. But I don’t think you would take that bet.

    BTW. I’m also going to make a screen grab of this and the I Drew This Thing #16, because that’s the closest my work will ever get to that of Edel Rodriguez and Scott Bakal.

    As usual on EFII, a great talk about great work! Thanks for sharing this!

    I totally agree with creating and promoting self-assigned illustrations in these areas you really want to work in. Know your target.

    Interesting Edel’s first portfolio was based on a theme and completely original. I’m sure, despite his modesty, it would have made a big impression on art directors.

    Scott Bacall and now Edel Rodriquez. The heavy hitters of Drawger FTW.

    Just started listening to this today and I’m loving the information Edel is passing along. Great podcast. Thanks, Thomas!
