Two of the four founders of Art Breakers Illustration Society - Laura Bifano and Tessa Riecken, joined me in studio to talk about the upcoming Art Breakers event, how it got started, the community it is creating, its value and what the future goals are. We also spend some time talking about Tessa's and Laura's art practices, their approach to art and separation between personal and professional work.

Don't miss out on the event happening on September 22nd and 23rd.
Tessa Riecken is traditionally trained painter who currently works at Titmouse as a character designer while doing a lot of illustration during her free time.
