Before we jump into next week's series of five brand new episodes all featuring various members of The VACVVM, let's hit rewind and visit November 30, 2015, when we released a rare interview with founder Aaron Horkey. How rare is this conversation you ask? This meeting was the last interview that Aaron agreed to do and I'm beyond honored that it was with Adventures In Design and me. Not only will you learn more about his mysterious world and have a better understanding of his subject matter after listening and learning that Horkey's world is just that, a world of his own creation, where every subject matter is part of his illustrated fantasied ecosystem that is as complex as it is beautiful. You will also get to hear a lucky byproduct of professional success, the personal fulfillment that comes along with helping out others, as you get to hear the early concept, inspiration, and hopes of what The VACVVM could aspire to become. Listen all next week to hear the consequences of what happens when a successful artist decides to share his resources with his friends and other artists that he equally admires. Until then, have a safe and fun weekend, see you back here on Monday to kick off VACVVM week on AID.
