Ep 67 - Dorian Vallejo art and grit and love

I had a great conversation with artist Dorian Vallejo. Son of artists Boris and Doris Vallejo, Dorian grew up surrounded by creativity and inquiry, and it shows. His work is technically brilliant, his paintings, otherworldly. Floating figures in beautiful, natural, dreamlike worlds. We talk about sewing, tennis, the wild ones, bodybuilding, holding your breath underwater, oh, and painting, lots and lots of painting . . .

Here are the main points of what we talk about:

Creative process,
Growth through failure,
Scene machine,

Underwater model photography,
