It was a great pleasure to chat with John face to face (before lockdown, I hasten to add) back in December of 2019.
John is a well known FX artist who has since gone on to work at Tussauds and is a freelance artist.
I think you will get a real kick out of hearing his take, a perfect attitude to how to feel when creating. We chat about what it means to sculpt, that internal dialogue we all have when creating something new,
Fact checking bellend: In this, I mistakenly assign Constantin Brâncuși as the artist behind 'Nude Descending a Staircase (No. 2)' which of course it wasn't - it was Marcel Duchamp.
