Episode 286 - Chris Shary “Chris Goes To High School”

How Chris Shary accidentally became a high school drama teacher and used that down time to get back into doing sharpie illustrations of iconic punk rockers. Chris explains how he puts his narrative on character illustrations. How the Descendents are the greatest rock band to never act like a rock band and how a generation of kids didn’t fit in while rocking out to their music. With a constant relationship forming with the Descendents Chris has found himself feeling a part of the group he grew up loving. How working hard and getting recognized opened all of the doors in his rock design career. How living with his parents was the best move in being able to work for pride and experience. Why Chris realized that teaching was the way he could make a difference in the world and decided to make art a hobby again. 


In The Circle of Trust


Mark quizzes Chris about being a teacher and what he sees from his high school students, how the world has changed and stayed the same all at once. At what age do people start doubting their artistic talents and give up. Chris today sees his drama class as a metaphor to the punk rock scene that he grew up in. Is the generation coming up as bad as we think they are? The balance of nurturing  talented students and giving what you can to students that don’t care.

We learn about how Tristan’s current style has evolved from many practices in his past and how we’re really looking at road map of where he’s been and where he’s going. Tristan shares his past and how he used to keep all of his talents restricted to different disciplines in the world of design. How taking it slow and not allowing himself to feel rushed allowed him to stay in a calm spot and focus on just making the best work possible. From clients to freestyling, we hear how Tristan creates his huge outdoor murals from execution to preplanning. Depth and meaning in his work, trying to give his emotion and tone but staying away from being literal or obvious. How Tristan always feels welcomed in a city where he has a mural.
