THE OTHER DAN SAVAGE

Daniel Savage, not to be confused with Dan Savage the LGBT activist and writer, is one of my favorite designers and animators in our industry. He’s a bit of a maverick who has not only reinvented himself in terms of his portfolio and style but he has initiated beloved projects such as Yule Log and Mixed Parts, a Reddit style discussion forum for our industry.

Dan’s one of the most honest and sociable people I have met and I always enjoy getting into a discussion with him as he always has an insightful point of view when it comes to design and animation. 

Join Dan and myself discuss a broad range of stuff over a cup of coffee together in my home town Austin, Texas. The episode was recorded out of the sound studio so keep that in mind while listening. Enjoy!
