Is Monday gettin’ all up in your mix and making you feel sad and blue? Don’t worry Lucille - it’s #FunkMongerMonday ! Today’s funk comes in the form of Dan Berry - the smoothest voice in comics.
Now, I’m not a fan of silence. It gives me the heeby jeebies and makes me aware of the sound that my hair makes while it’s growing. Dark and sinister sounds that make me wanna plug things into my ears and shove three handfuls of podcasts into my brain-hole. Don’t worry though, that’s were Dan Berry comes into the mix.
Now, if you are familiar with Dan, you’ll know that he’s a creator of great comics, a tremendous artist and a really funny writer. He can also draw foxes so foxy that your hands will turn into bulldog clips and you’ll start pinching the fellow that lives next door. Pinch pinch pinch. if you’ve been living under a shoe for the last few years then you might not realise that he also runs one of my favourite podcasts - Make it then tell everybody. If you’ve never caught an episode then go and hit yourself with a book like a bad Dobby, because you’re missing out like a trout with a snout!
Dan chats with some of the koolest (with a K) folk in the comics and illustration world who share tips, stories, advice and kool (with a K) thangs. Over the past two years I’ve discovered tons of new artists and found out a stack about some of my favourites. Dan is a generous fellow and makes them freely available to anybody with ears and an internet connection, but you should visit his Patreon page and slide a few pence his way - that way he can make more! Don’t take my word for it though you rascal, go and check him out - you’ll feel awfully foolish for not finding it sooner!
