In Episode 9 we chat with illustrator and street artist Conzo Throb. Conzo has been involved with the Secret Walls events and we chat about how that came about and what he loves about the format.
Conzo’s distinctive, round–headed and chubby-cheeked characters have been appearing on walls in art studios, office complexes, bars and restaurants across Scotland for a number of years. As illustration and street art have fused, Conzo has been at the cutting edge, his funny and fast art taking him all around the world.
In this episode we talk about how the Secret Walls initiative has made cartooning a spectator event; Conzo’s extensive work with young people; his approach to illustration assignments; and the origins of his drawing style.
