Ted Washington Talks to the Artist Odyssey
Puna’s Ted Washington was recently featured on the Artist Odyssey. The Artist Odyssey explores the studios and lives of artists around the world.
The feature includes a video of a previous interview / mini documentary Ted did with Art Pulse TV and a Q&A with the Artist Odyssey’s Executive Producer, Barbarella Fokos.
Ted talks with Fokos about his band, Pruitt Igoe, and the group’s latest recordings, which he describes as being “more approachable” and driven by political and social issues.
He also discusses the latest art he’s been working on, as well as his lesser known love of comics and work in an animation studio.
In the Q&A, Ted gives a great overview of Puna Press and how it came into existence, namely with the publication of his first book More, after he was told that no standard publisher would print that kind of poetry book.
He ends the interview with some sage advice: “If there is something you want to do, and your belly is full, and your family is well, and you have people willing to help, get after it.”
Read the whole thing to find out more about the press, what Ted’s been working on, upcoming show’s that he’s participating in and more long term dreams.
