Saying Goodbye to Brick and Mortar

Wes Burke @wesburke

2 years of collaborating without meeting face to face

Jonathan Williamson and I were as remote as it gets. Nearly two years would pass before we’d even meet in person when we met in Illinois to look for our first studio space

Why get a studio?

It was 2010: YouTube was 4 years old, streaming video hadn’t yet gone mainstream, digital artists were learning how to build their own audiences online. It was an exciting time and it seemed like the natural order of things; create a startup, gain traction and get a physical space to be taken seriously as a business.
