Mackie Osborne Interview
« on: April 01, 2008, 10:20:45 AM »
it's just a few days old, I did it for the magazine ROKKO'S ADVENTURES myspace.com/rokkosadventures
I'll make a story out of it for the next issue, but here is the uncut version.
rokko for me, mackie for mackie-o:

Rokko: When did you start making art? And what were the results?
Mackie Osborne: I started drawing animals as a kid, I ended up with a career in advertising and design.

Rokko: Did you go to an art school or are you an autodidact?
Mackie: I went to school. Although I have to say I've learned more from working that I ever learned in school. School can be good for learning social skills, they're important. Also learning to listen to input and take criticism gracefully is a very important skill set in this field, probably one of the most important skills you can learn.

Rokko: Who are artists [music, film, painting, writing, performance,... ] you admire and that have inspired you or still do?
Mackie: Those are some long lists... I like a lot of different stuff.
Musically: David Bowie, the Melvins, of course, Patti Smith, Neil Young, Pink Floyd, Zeplin, Big Black, Sex Pistols, Johnny Cash, Throbbing Gristle, Tool
Artistically: Edward Gorey, Diane Arbus, Chas. Addams, Alex Steinweiss, Chip Kid, Vaugn Oliver...
Writing: J.D. Salinger, C.S. Lewis, Tolkien, Hafiz,
Film: Blade Runner, Princess Bride, Legend of Sleepy Hollow, Edward Scissorhands, Dune, Fire Walk With Me, Wild at Heart, Blue Velvet, My Neighbor Totoro, Snow White,

Rokko: How was your career as graphic artist? Since when can you live on making art?
Mackie: I've made a living doing art since the 80's. After school I worked in advertising for six years. Since then I've worked freelance, doing music packaging, some book design, art direction on a couple magazines, some entertainment stuff and whatever else came along.

Rokko: You also did work as art director for Eptiapth Records, didn

Mackie: I'm working on a limited edition box set for the Melvins that will be printed by DeeOhGee Press. I'm also designing a book for Chet Zar and working on a line of merchandise, among other things.

I think that's the first Mackie interview I've ever read. Very cool ElGrampo, thank you.

And a limited edition box set? Sounds sweet.
