TMO Background Mode Interview with Joy of Tech Co-founder Nitrozac


| The Mac Observer's Background Mode Podcast

Nitrozac (Liza Schmalcel) is an accomplished artist and cartoonist. Along with her partner, Snaggy, she founded Geek Culture in 1997, and it continues to thrive. She’s also the co-founder of the Joy of Tech webcomic. Nitrozac told me about growing up in northern Manitoba, Canada. She knew at a very early age that she wanted to become an artist, and she’s been drawing non-stop ever since. After high school, she attended the Ontario College of Art and Design in Toronto. Nitrozac suffered for a bit with not very capable computers before she went on to photography and communication design. Eventually, she met Snaggy the team has been at the center of our geek culture for two decades. And now, she’s graciously provided a new self-portrait for us. It’s the Nitrozac mystique!

    Thank you Nitrozac & John, for those illuminating & fascinating verbal & graphic portraits of Nitrozac, Joy of Tech/Geek Culture, & Snaggy.

    You indicated you’d leave a link on this webpage to Patreon, which I was only able to find indirectly through surfing in the Joy of Tech link you posted.

    I recommend following that same indirect path; through the Joy of Tech link ( https://www.macobserver.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/08/nitrozacandsnaggy-600w.jpg ) & digesting its contents before going on to check out what’s on the Patreon link there.

    very good stuff, indeed!
