An amazing assortment of weirdo artists join to discuss the implications of A.I. on the future of art and creativity.

Jonathan, Easton and Todd amalgamate their imaginal forces to whoop the ass of our corporate overlords, while I try to remain neutral and pretend like I have not been exploiting A.I. to create episode art for a while now!

Along the way Todd co-hosts the episode which you may also find on his feed today, Easton attempts to share the secrets of the trade but is censored by a phantom train, Jonathan desperately tries to settle down his dog thinking I would not notice during editing, and I put my biologist cap on in an attempt to sound smart as a non-artist impostor among professionals!

Meet Easton Hawk and his amazing humanly-made artwork TODAY at Frogman Festival in Mason, Ohio!
