31: Turning Marks Into Art Using Graphite and Charcoal with Artist and YouTuber Scott Maier

Mike finishes a commission and does a little urban sketching. He then picks up an etch-a-sketch for the 60th anniversary of the device. Mike is then joined by artist and YouTuber Scott Maier. Scott has a formal BFA and MFA and has been teaching and creating art for a couple of decades. He has recently been doing live YouTube drawing tutorials since March. Mike and Scott explore some of the videos and talk about the challenges and joy that can be found in putting pencil to paper.
