This week I sit down virtually with Allison Sommers, from her home in Brooklyn. Allison and I talk about her child as a military brat, her wildly, creative imagination and her slow coming, watershed moment around making the art her heart was telling her to all along. I have attached a cheat sheet below for references in our chat.
Flotsam -- Allison’s new book
Allison's flickr page
Thinkspace Gallery - Allison's Gallery
One of fifty -- Allison's self-imposed paint off til her birthday
Ten spot tinys -- Allison's teeny paintings
Pidgeon Trading Post -- a book by Allison on pigeons, naturally
Rod Luff (pigeon painting I bought)
An example Allison's long neck creatures
You can also see more of Allison's work and inspiration through a special post she did for the blog last year.
On a side note, if you guys enjoy the podcasts -- please consider suscribing and rating on iTunes. You can also check out the podcast on Soundcloud where you can leave comments below specfic parts of the recording. Neat!
