  This week on Something from Nothing Randall Griggs is the featured artist. During the show Randall talks about both his printmaking and robot building. Randall--a friend of the show thanks to his donation of a poster print to the live podcast--and I talked at his home where he builds robots and designs his prints.

Randall only fully pursued art when he experienced it as a necessity for livelihood; this story is explored in the show. Randall also shares how he became drawn to the unique style of creating robots.

He talks about inspirations and influences in his art. He talks specifically about the creative process when designing a poster print for a music concert. Randall shares a time when he thought the poster show was going to go really badly but it turned out to be one of his favorites.

Randall talks with joy about what enjoys about making robots and designing prints. He has certainly found his niche in the art community.

The show closed with Randall talking about how he hopes his art effects other people.
