LUTEFISK SUSHI PODCAST episode 22: Live from SPRINGCON with Justin Skarhus of 2D Cloud, Brad McGinty, Zander Cannon & Lupi McGinty

In the twenty-second episode host DANNO KLONOWSKI is joined live for a panel recorded at the recent Springcon in St Paul by JUSTIN SKARHUS of 2D CLOUD, BRAD McGINTY, and previous Sushi Podcast guests ZANDER CANNON, and LUPI McGINTY.  Unlike previous one-on-one creator talks, this episode instead gets rather meta as we discuss the very notion of comic book conventions, what it means to be indie creators tabling fandom shows, and if in this age of interwebs and kickstarters if comic cons are even a relevant outlet and necessity for getting our work to the masses. Since it was recorded live at the con in a ‘room’ made up of cloth partitions there is plenty of ambient con noise, and you, the listening audience, will feel like you were really there!  Thanks to Nick Post and the fine folks at the MCBA for making this possible!

Lutefisk Sushi Podcast episode 11: The Nordeast Comics Summit (Dec 2011) “Game Show Time!”

In the eleventh episode host DANNO KLONOWSKI is joined again by KEVIN CANNON to introduce this months NORDEAST COMICS SUMMIT : “Game Show Time”.  That’s right, to celebrate the end of the year (and the ninth anniversary of the International Cartoonist Conspiracy), Kevin and Conspiracy Grand Poo-bah Steve Stwalley put on a game show with an interactive Jeopardy-style game board, mind-bending questions about both local and national comics and cartoonists, and honest-to-goodness valuable prizes!  All were asked to show up early and put their name into a hat.  Steve (as you’ll hear) drew the names randomly and two teams of three players were selected.  Lets meet the fierce competitors, shall we:

TEAM GREEN: Nicholas Straight, episode 6 guest Lupi McGinty, and Zander Cannon

TEAM YELLOW:  Episode 2 guest Athena Currier, Danno Klonowski (I know, I know. I assure it was random!), and Timothy Foss

There were also five 30 second “DRAW” rounds where all six player had to draw the same thing. The audience then voted for the best (teams) drawing.  Here are the winners (you’ll have to listen to find out which team they belong to):

The next Nordeast Comics Summit will be on JANUARY 5th, from 6-6:30 at Big Time Attic: 1618 Central Ave NE, Ste. 216, MPLS, MN 55413

Lutefisk Sushi Podcast episode 6: Lupi McGinty

In the sixth episode host DANNO KLONOWSKI talks with MN cartoonist LUPI McGINTY about the prolific body of work she’s produced over the last 3 years, Calvin and Hobbes, and the cut-throat world of podcasting.

This talk was recorded while we both very much-so drunk on the Mexican island of Isla Mujeres, and features a kick-ass music interlude by the hardest-working Mariachi in show business.  The closing song is a bootleg recording of JESUS CAMPUZANO . I did buy his album, but I wanted to give a dose of what it was like to see him live 3 times in the space of a week. Sadly, his cover of Rage Against the Machine’s KILLING IN THE NAME OF was not recorded for future generations. It was pretty amazing.
