The Podcast

What began in 2019 as a weekly on-line drink and draw with art college friends developed into the Tradecraft Podcast. While the name and format have changed, the mission remains; Find inspiration in the creative journey and process with the people responsible for the books and comics we love.

About Alex

I spent the '90s writing and pencilling for Marvel and DC. Since then, I work as an art director and designer for luxury and Fortune 500 brands. Now I write science fiction, fantasy, and thriller novels—and yes, more comic books.


Thank you to the hundreds of amazing people who shared their valuable stories and time with me. And the deepest thanks to my college mates for their contributions over the years—I'll carry on the conversation we started in 2019.
