I recently had a chat with Ash Thorp on his internet show "The Collective". Ash is a talented designer/illustrator/motion graphics artist in the film industry and he hosts a weekly podcast dedicated to  having conversations with entertainment industry professionals. The show is very casual, being more of a free form conversation as opposed to an interview. During the course of the show we hit upon many different subjects including my book, work/life balance, self reflection and much more, so if you are interested you can check it out here: The Collective, ep.46 - Derek Stenning

Ash also has piles of other episodes of The Collective on his SoundCloud site, featuring amazing artists including Scott Robertson, Anthony Jones, Jeff Simpson, and Ryan Hawkins just to name a few. Visit The Collective and take a look.

Thanks to Ash Thorp for having me on!

  2. My pleasure Mel. Thanks for the kind words.
