~An Extension Of The Self With Jack Greer

 

Episode 27 is with artist, designer, and filmmaker Jack Greer!
Jack is the owner/creator of the fashion brand IGGY

 

 

 

Making art since a child, Jack speaks about the art he creates, his experience at art school, and his years of pursuing the fine art world. Learning that it was not the place for him, he decided to step away. Jack notes the muddy waters of fine art, being pigeon-holed to one medium, and that being a catalyst for creating a full-length documentary about Tompkins and starting his brand IGGY.

As a fellow cynic, I loved Jack’s critical honesty about his crafts and running a brand by himself. No sugar coating in this episode, he reveals the perks but also the immense sole responsibility he experiences to make sure IGGY operates as you see it.

 

 

He spoke with conviction throughout the interview of how imperative it is to be yourself. IGGY is truly just an extension of himself transferred into a physical world through design! At his apartment, I saw binders and binders of perfectly archived graphics he had drawn. I loved learning that all the designs for IGGY are hand-drawn by Jack and then rendered.

Oh also! Jack’s pup, Iggy, makes a couple cameos in the interview…it’s only fitting 🙂
