A leading, award winning genre artist, John Picacio is the subject of an audio interview from The Functional Nerds, conducted by Patrick Hester and John Anealio. It’s a long and fascinating interview covering many topics, from inspiration to technique to current projects. Among those projects? The 2012 A Song of Ice and Fire calendar, which Picacio mentions as one of his ongoing projects in the course of the interview.
