Anyone who every read Spawn, or likes to get their hands on well crafted action figures, has heard of Todd McFarlane.  But how many of you have had the opportunity to actually interview the man?   Long time friend of Major Spoilers, and host of the ELR and The Instance podcasts, Scott Johnson ( got the word from Todd, and ended up interviewing him for both shows.

What I did not expect was to come away with a wealth of advice and life lessons as a cartoonist. Any of you that are interested in art, drawing, cartooning, whatever…you HAVE to listen to this interview. Hopefully you will pull out some of the same nuggets that I did…gaining a new perspective from someone who has done it and done it in spades is really really powerful for me. Did I mention that he was just about as nice a guest as you could ever hope for?

Congratulations Mr. Johnson on landing a terrific interview!  For those of you who have not heard of ELR, check it out here.  I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Scott for about four years now, and have even had the pleasure of helping to sponsor his Nerdtacular event for two years now.

Now if Mr. McFarlane would like to appear on the Major Spoilers Podcast, he is welcome anytime… (cheesy grin).
