Get Your Mojo On

I had the pleasure last week to be interviewed by Mark Lipinski on Creative Mojo, an Internet radio show. Mark is the Creative Director for All American Crafts publishing and the mastermind behind so many of the craft magazines that you see on the racks at Barnes and Noble and other newsstands. He is also known as the 'bad boy' of quilting and has quite an irreverent and exuberant personality. If you are already familiar with him, you know what I'm talking about!

Mark had seen 'Self Contained', my project with Vivian Bonder and Stephanie McAtee in the January/February issue of Cloth Paper Scissors. He wanted to discuss more about the project and about collaborating in general.

The interview was live on Wednesday 4/20 but you can hear it as a podcast available for download in iTunes or, more simply, at this link. Just scroll down and click on the 4/20/11 show. Creative Mojo is two hours long but you can find my segment between 37:30 and 59:00. 

Thanks Mark for the opportunity. It was a great experience.

Never heard of this creative mojo guy (more dj than artist?) but pulled down your portion of the interview and thought your words about collabs taking the sting out of the isolation we may feel was poignant, also good advice about many other issues to consider, I believe this is an artform that has much potential but requires the flexibility you addressed in your interview.

Mark's a riot! I know him from his Pickle Road Yahoo group and have seen him speak in person. How did you ever keep a straight face? I haven't checked out the piece, but will. Congrats on making it to the fun time!
