73: Alec Longstreth – Gutter Talk Podcast

Sometimes life seems to point you in the direction it wants you to go. And sometimes it drops you in the middle of nowhere with a good luck pat on the back. Both times should be celebrated as chances to see what happens in the biggest game of Chance ever: life. In this Gutter Talk episode, Adam sits down with artist and educator, Alec Longstreth, to discuss the path that got him to where he is. From living in cities all across the United States to working on the set of Star Wars in Australia, Alec has a thing or two to say about a thing or two, and can even back it up with some amazing art.

One of the things we hear frequently is how artists adapt, as well as the various ways artists use the materials around them to create tricks and tools of the trade. In Alec’s case, it’s a MacGyvered tool rack that he has attached to the side of his drawing table. Alec was kind enough to send us a photo so we’ve attached that to this post. If you’re reading this on a mobile device and can’t see the photo, please be sure to check out the post on the site.
