In our latest podcast we embark on a magical mystery tour into the wonderful world of Liverpool based artist Luke McConkey. Luke spills the beans on how he first grabbed our attention, the fact that he "draws like he's a nice guy", and his side project as an independent record label owner.

The Handsome Frank Podcast 15 – Joël Penkman

Once again we took the Handsome Frank podcast on the road, this time to a snow covered Liverpool to meet up with the wonderful Joël Penkman. Based in Maghull, on the northern outskirts of the city we turned up at the beautiful mid-century family house that Joël and her partner James call home. The smell of fresh coffee and freshly baked bread greeted us, offering a very welcome sanctuary from the unseasonable elements of the morning.



Sitting down in a sun soaked front room, we talked to Joël at length about an array of subjects, spanning from her journey from Christchurch NZ to the Liverpool suburbs, and how she discovered, and mastered, the ancient art of painting with egg tempera.

Fix yourself a cup of tea, make yourself comfortable and join us for an art adventure that spans the globe and the centuries. Listen to the podcast over at our website;
