Tim Foster is my guest for Episode 54. I was so absorbed by our conversation that I let it run long, so I split this episode into two parts.
Tim had started in comics working on titles similar to (but definitely not) the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles with friends like Sam Kieth (creator of The Maxx) and Tim Vigil (creator of Faust) before realized he didn’t want to draw super heroes in tights. He then worked as an artists for Tower Records for several years before moving on to the world of print in the 90s.
Tim Foster and his wife, artist Liv Moe, ran Midtown Monthly for several years before closing the periodical in 2012. He’s also been involved with Open California and Capitol Weekly for a number of years. He started his life in politics by writing a letter to the White House when he was 10 years old.
Tim had an interesting opinion and information about Jeff Koons’s art for the new Kings arena. He also had a great story about Jerry Brown and Gavin Newsom and how John Howard knew Gavin was going to lose before Gavin knew.
Thanks for stopping by and listening to my two-part conversation with Tim Foster!
