I had a great chat with artist Rachel Moseley in Las Vegas. Rachel is an artist. She paints with the technical chops of an old master and the eye of an urban street photographer.
Such is the demand for her work that her paintings sell before they’re even finished and she has shown her work throughout America and internationally.

We talk about Game of Thrones, dead bodies, babysitters, truth zingers, and art, lots of art and painting . . .

Here are the main points of what we talk about:

  • Creative heroes,
  • Early graffiti,
  • Forensic anthropology,
  • Illustration,,
  • Working with porn,
  • Teaching,
  • Inspiration,
  • Working with models,
  • Reference material,
  • Creating intimacy with models,
  • Las Vegas art scene,
  • Painting surfaces,
  • Colour studies,
  • Palette,
  • Softening edges,
  • Familial feedback,
  • Lighting setup,
