Episode 33: Happy Trees

The episode title suggests we got Bob Ross on the podcast, but we’ve done one better. Senior animator on Skullgirls and big time SMT fan Jonathan “Persona” Kim joined us. As promised this episode was all about the artwork of the series, as well as several tangents that are (hopefully) still well worth your time.

One of the things that tends draw people to the Persona series is the wonderful art direction. Often you’ll hear how the just the visuals alone from a Persona game were enough to convince somone to give the games a shot. So it’s high time we dedicated an episode to just to that aspect of the series. We’ll be covering both Soejima and Kaneko’s art, as well as several other key discussion points.

For this episode, we thought it was important that we bring in a talented artist, and low and behold it’s happening. Very happy to announce that Jonathan “Persona” Kim will be joining us on this episode! Persona(the artist) is a senior animator on the popular fighting game Skullgirls, and has worked on other titles like Scott Pilgrim the game. Not to mention a big SMT/Persona fan as well!

The recording will be happening this upcoming Saturday(the 17th) So if you have any questions or comments regarding the art of the series, or any questions for Persona(the artist) please post them below!
