Our narrator for this episode is Dominick Rabrun. Dominick Rabrun was born in Brooklyn, New York, and now lives near Washington, DC. At an early age he discovered his love of cartoons, computers, books, comics, and video games. This led to an exploration of experimental and artistically expressive artwork as an adult. Dom fully embraces the syncretic nature of his art, which is powered by a complex and unique mixture of influences and mediums. He can be seen and heard weekly on Dom’s Sketch Cast, a show that blends interviews, animations, and experimental video art.
