Hypercasts are long-format interview shows that go into detail on subjects of great interest to artists and art fans, hosted by Guy AItchison and Michele Wortman and featuring guests known for a wide variety of artistic styles and accomplishments. The shows typically run for an hour, starting with an in-depth interview, followed by audience questions and then finishing with a few critiques of tattoos submitted by viewers. Interviews are conducted via Skype, often with multiple guests appearing simultaneously. A lot of fascinating visual material is included as well. Listed here are links to the archived episodes:
Episode 1: Fine Art And The Tattoo Industry, Featuring Durb Morrison with special guest Mike Cole
Episode 2: Taking Realism To The Next Level, featuring Nikko Hurtado
Episode 3: Illustrative Tattooing Featuring Russ Abbott, with special guests Teresa Sharpe and Kelly Doty
Episode 4: Visionary Art Featuring Juan Salgado, with special guest Damon Conklin
Episode 5: The Collab Show, Featuring Litos, Don McDonald, Ty McEwen, and Hannah Aitchison. (In post- production now)
