Welcome to Episode 17!
 
This week, the guys sit down with Craig Holland. Craig is a freelance comic illustrator based out of Southern New Hampshire. Starting as a hungry art student, Craig received his BFA in illustration and has honed his craft and pushed his creative boundaries with his vibrant Kickstarter, 'Color Me Reggie' pairs the stylized allure of comics with the interactivity of a coloring book.
