Episode 114.2: Sandbox Interview with Designer, Illustrator & Creator of Leaky Timbers Joey Ellis

Episode Synopsis

This episode has been a long time coming and we couldn't be more excited to sit down with the supremely talented Joey Ellis. While we had intended to take a look at the breadth of Joey's work, the topic of Leaky Timbers was just too dang fascinating. We take a deep dive into the history behind the characters and pitch video and discuss what you can expect from Joey Ellis and Luke Flowers at Creative South 2018. We'll just have to have Joey back to continue the discussion. Can't wait.
