You will never know how thankful I am for the modellers that are in my periphery. I am literally surrounded by amazing artists who are quite satisfied with their art, and less so with fame. To me, it is really humbling to see what the difference is between a wealthy modeller and one that scrapes by with only the tools he needs.

Like a cheapo camera and simple household lamps for "studio lighting"

Please enjoy while I interview my latest Patreon supporter, Chester Fesmire. And hey, if you are not a Patron that is ok, you can see the interview too.

I recognise that I am nobody. My art is created to suit me, my hobby, life. In fact one of the most, ridiculous things I ever heard was, you need to take a break from the Hobby. A hobby is often the only legal self-medicating procedure this world has. And I partake with fervour, so does my new friend.

Well, I ask Michael Paul Smith to have a chat about what drives his hobby. And what do you know, we found Common Ground.
