Episode 10: After Inspiration With a Club With Chad Coffman…& Boris kicked everyone out

Episode 10: After Inspiration With a Club with our guest the artist Chad Coffman. In this week’s episode we get to talk about Virginian Chickens, Gary Larson, satirical sculpture and the process of keeping action movies on in the background. Also in “What’s On My Desk This Week,” I discuss an old favorite, Boris By The Sea by Matvei Yankelevich from Octopus Books. We are full of prepositions and proud of it. Please do what you do, listen and enjoy!

Chad Coffman

Chad Coffman was born in Broadway, Virginia, in the middle of the Shenandoah Valley. Ever since his very early childhood, he has committed himself to some type of art. At age six he was covering his grandmother’s living room with drawings of fantastical creatures inspired by anything from Jim Henson to science fiction, horror, and antiquity. At age eight he remembered getting his first block of polymer clay and instantly being addicted. Fast forward through to college, and his love for the medium never ceased. He received his BFA in Crafts & Material Studies with an emphasis in glass and ceramics from Virginia Commonwealth University in 2004. During his education, he was selected for the Allan Eastman Award of Achievement for creative excellence in his ceramic work. He now has returned to the Shenandoah Valley were he continues to imagine and create the work of his life’s calling. Check out Chad Coffman’s website here.


From Boris By The Sea, available from Octopus Books:

So Boris stopped what he was doing and began to live alone. He kicked
everyone out. And he said, This is worse for me, but better for everyone.
And he was scorned.

Boris was not always this way. Before he was like everybody else, and
he could say:

–             —What should I do.

–                                                              and

–             —Should I do.

–                                                             and also

–              —I do.

These things got him into trouble with Woman.
But not only that. Other things too.
