82: Jeffrey Burandt – Gutter Talk Podcast

Some of you may be old or wise enough to remember a heavy metal band called Twisted Sister. Back when MTV used to play music, they had a video out for one their popular songs, “We’re Not Gonna Take It” and in this video, the opening montage starts with an angry father berating his young teen for playing rock and roll on his guitar. At the end of his tirade, he angrily asks, “What do you want to do with your life?” The kid looks at him with a grin and that patent heavy metal glare and says, “I wanna rock.”

The reason for the trip down memory lane is because at the end of this Gutter Talk interview with artist and musician Jeffrey Burandt, we could picture little Jeffrey Burandt saying that classic line but following it up with, “And make comics, too.”

Join Adam and Jef as they turn it up to 11 and discuss not just the depths of art but the depth of life, too. As the previous 81 episodes will attest, we all encounter hurdles and mountains in our quest to fill our lives with creative endeavors, big or small. While there are better ways of coping than others, to say there is only one way to cope would be a very tough thing to sell. There are so many things we can learn from others and we hope you take from these podcasts not just the knowledge of comic creation but also some mechanisms your peers have put in place to help them as they navigate through this wacky thing called life as an artist.
