A I D E-XTREME! The most E-XTREME Adventures In Design yet!!! Mark & Billy, as always, go over a wide range of non-design related topics, but somehow find themselves ranting and raging on how they may have picked the worst industry in the world to be a part of. The boys are joined in the studio by long time friend John Solimine from Spike Press. John is a Brooklyn-based designer who recently just finished his first iOS app titled Dragon Brush. The interview that follows is a very honest and realistic depiction of what it takes for illustrators to create long-term projects with little to no money attached, thus creating a true labor of love.

Mark and Billy are back with their ninth episode and this time around they have Mitch Putnam & Rob Jones in the studio with them. Mitch Putnam run's the popular poster blog omgposters.com and Rob Jones is a Grammy winning, seasoned poster veteran who is probably most known for his ongoing working relationship with Jack White and all of Jack's musical projects. Mitch & Rob are also 2/3 of the poster powerhouse Mondo, the company that releases some of the finest posters in our art movement. Mondo acts as the middle man between big movie studios and amazing DIY illustrator /designers around the globe. With these four highway men in the studio together, the conversation covers the past, present, and future of poster making, as well as what goes into creating original artwork for various medias, like movies, bands, etc. Aside from this fascinating look into one of the biggest names in today's poster world, episode 9 as always, covers a wide range of design, business and personal topics that Mark and Billy have encountered since the last time they sat down to have this conversation with you.
