About Us

We jointly interview subjects from all range of areas from entertainment, technology, politics, to basic person on the street stories.  While interviewing, Jim films via 4K cameras and Tim illustrates the subject on his Wacom Cintiq Hybrid tablet. If you can imagine a program that is a blend of HGTV’s Property Brothers, Charlie Rose, and Bob Ross then you’ve got our show.

Most amazingly, our process, called GLOGGING, is a new form of Cartoon Journalism.  The genesis of this concept was generated during a collaboration with Joyce Brabner’s COMIXCAST.

Where Blogging is digital journalism with WORDS, Vlogging is digital journalism with VIDEO, then GLOGGING is digital journalism with illustrated cartoon or animated GRAPHICS.

We have glogged at the Republican National Convention, Democratic National Convention, and Star Trek 50th Anniversary show at Jacob Javits in NYC.  We have been covered by The New York Times as well as CNET.
