KC Creates Interview-Caleb Harman

Caleb Harman is a hell of an artist and the penultimate creator—which is why I decided to make him the first non-writer interview in my podcast series. I know absolutely nothing about art, and was a little worried my lack of knowledge would lead to a crap interview, but it turns out creativity doesn’t care what medium we work in. Caleb and I had plenty to talk about including:Caleb Harman drawing

  • How a childhood diagnosis changed his awareness of the world and can serve as a jumping off point for his art.
  • Why the darker side of things is more engaging, mysterious, and fun to explore.
  • As in the H.R. Giger alien that Ridley Scott brought to film.
  • The similarities of art processes vs. the gardner/architect approach to writing
  • Why he decided graduate school was the right place for him to expand his creative community.
  • The need for a transition time between home life and artistic productivity.
  • What you thought being an artist mean when you were growing up verses the reality of what being a working artist actually is.
  • The evolution of Story in visual art and his current exploration of world-building mythological creation.
