In case you missed it live, Thursday’s Words And Pictures program on KBOO-FM, in which I discuss my new book Extreme Perspective! with host SW Conser, is now archived at the KBOO website. In other audio news, I just recorded a podcast interview with Chronic Rift host Andrea Lipinski. The audio will be available March 29th.
Continuing the media juggernaut for my new book Extreme Perspective! For Artists: Learn the Secrets of Curvilinear, Cylindrical, Fisheye, Isometric, and Other Amazing Systems that Will Make Your Drawings Pop Off the Page, I’ll be making my second appearance of the week on local radio station KBOO-FM 90.7, chatting with Words And Pictures host SW Conser. I’ll let Conch tell it:
Comics artist, illustrator, voice actor, and bon vivant David Chelsea pays a return visit to Words & Pictures this Thursday morning (March 10th) from 11:30am to noon PST on KBOO. Tune in as we tour David’s Portland studio and follow the twists and turns of a thirty-year career in the lively arts.
David’s new book and DVD set Extreme Perspective! For Artists has just been published by Watson-Guptill. Years in the making, the book features surprising tips and entertaining background history about the role of perspective in art, and the DVD includes resources useful to both mainstream and experimental cartoonists.
Words & Pictures airs the second Thursday of each month on KBOO Community Radio, 90.7fm. KBOO’s real-time webstream is available at http://kboo.fm/listen via iTunes or Abacast. More info and links to recent webcasts can be found at http://www.tooningin.com

I’ll be dropping by Matt Clark’s show The Monday Sampler on KBOO-FM this Monday, March 7th between 3 and 4pm PST to discuss my new book Extreme Perspective! For Artists: Learn the Secrets of Curvilinear, Cylindrical, Fisheye, Isometric, and Other Amazing Systems that Will Make Your Drawings Pop Off the Page, and also to spin some records from my collection. I’ll be featuring postwar jazz vocal groups of the LP era (roughly 1950-1985) and the selections will likely include but possibly not be confined to such groups as The Metronomes, The Invitations, Lambert Hendricks and Bavan and The Suntones, many on the original vinyl.

One of my very occasional moonlighting activities has been acting on the radio, often reading Damon Runyon stories in my best Brooklyn accent for KBOO-FM’s program Gremlin Time. The program’s producer, Matt Clark, alias Fortunato, has a posted a number of audio files of past programs here. One of Fortunato’s quirks is that he insists that actors perform under aliases containing a color; l have two- “Naples Yellow” for Runyon stories, “Paynes Gray” for everything else. My personal favorite is “Johnny One-Eye”, a grim tale of a gutshot gangster who befriends a stray cat, in which l perform with my daughter Rebecca (“Sky Blue”).
For those of you who missed Monday’s broadcast of Jim Woodring’s story Dinosaur Cage on KBOO-FM, the audio file is posted here. Woodring himself wasn’t available, so I do the narration.
One of my very occasional moonlighting activities has been acting on the radio. Usually I’m reading Damon Runyon stories in my best Brooklyn accent under the alias “Naples Yellow” for KBOO-FM’s program Gremlin Time, but tonight it’s something a little more contemporary, a radio adaptation of “Frank” cartoonist Jim Woodring’s story Dinosaur Cage. I’m the narrator, and there is another cartoonist in the cast- The Oregonian’s Michael Russell, who years ago drew this strip about my first 24 Hour Comics Session. Another cartoonist, S.W. Conser, adapted and directed the piece. It is scheduled to air tonight (Monday) at 11pm PDT as one of the features on KBOO’s “Ubu Hour” (alert, in case you’re forwarding the info to friends: several of the other theater pieces airing tonight feature parental-advisory language).
The show can be tuned in live on the web at http://kboo.fm/listen but if you prefer to wait until Tuesday, the audio will be up on the KBOO website, available for download.
