Phil was one of the special guests at Spectrum Fantastic Art Live and I had the honor of moderating this panel with him. I was a little nervous, too. We had interviewed him on the podcast recently, but this was my first time meeting him face-to-face. I noticed a couple things about him right out of the gate:
1) Phil is a lot taller in person than he looks in pictures. I thought he was my height. Not so much! He's easily over six feet.
2) He was super nice. Not that I expected him to be an ogre or anything. But the man creates such provocative and moving images, I guess I thought he'd be all serious and what not. And to some extent he was. For the most part though, he was approachable and friendly, and very much a regular guy just there to hang out.
The panel took place on Friday (the first official day of the show) and it was well attended. I asked a few starter questions, then we opened it up for Q & A. Hope you enjoy the audio.
