Basic Folk 60: Taylor Ashton
"Taylor Ashton yes. Hello you're probably the most famous person that has no information on the Internet about them. Well can be true so far for me. Yes okay I I. You're you're a well known name in the folk world but this was a challenge sir. So let's see what we can see ads some some information and put it out there. Okay great well. Thank you for doing this. You grew up in a small community main island. The main island is actually not where I grew up But it is. It's often my old band fish and bird. That was kind of where we said we were from or based One of my band mates that I co-founded that bandwidth did grow up there and so that that's I think the source of that particular confusion but I grew up in Vancouver city. No that's eighty nine hundred person island no to two million person and city changes every single question. I Have Vancouver okay. What was that like for you growing up in Vancouver It was great. I mean it was We my dad moved there when I was GonNa say Susa six or seven And then he and I lived in a bunch of different apartments around around Vancouver In Vancouver was a great place to grow up because it seemed like there was always some kind of cultural thing that my dad was able to take me to and we were able to go on bike rides and get into the woods pretty easily which was really awesome. Growing up cool. Yeah it was just you and your dad. It was me and my dad. My parents split up when I was five. And a mom ended up in Calgary so I would I would be there some weekends and then like you know the spring break and Christmas break and then summers have fire. Are they apart our flight so and I did that as an unaccompanied minor like pretty much right off the bat. Five years old. I think more in the seven kind of range I would get on the plane with like had this like big lanyard with a big plastic envelope that said. Um on it. And don't steal me exactly. I mean in those days my dad could take me right to the gate and then my mom could come right to the gate to get me so Sure the flight attendants were yeah to Babysit for. And I'm sure that you know I think back on you know. I think I like what the seat one of the Times. Probably at the time I was like what's wrong with me and I think back and I'm just like that was probably kind of intense as a kid just flying by myself so it you know looking back on it as an adult. I'm like no wonder you know. Be kind to your younger self. Yeah exactly I definitely had like a move where I would. I would draw on the on the BARF bag as a kid I would like like. Oh the flight attendants are going to be so impressed and like they always work as a seven year old. It's like I want to be like. Wow that's so cool and it's like you know that was like my idea of socializing pretty interesting because you did. You'd have grown to become like a pretty talented illustrator which we can talk about later but What kind of things were you drawing as a kid on the BARF bags probably pretty similar to the stuff that I've drawn barf bags now when I take flights it's definitely a lot of Gosh it would be amazing to to see you know. I've never captaining stuff. I would always like the flight is. It'd be like wow. That's so cool. It'd be like do you want to have it and they were like okay You know I was. I was reading mad magazine as a kid. And there's a Lotta caricatures. Oh that's that's a pronunciation that my character. I had this fight with my dad recently where we were up for dinner with some other people in and we were talking about the words that people say wrong and like some ten minutes after that conversation ended. I just happened to say caracature and everyone was like. Where did you get that from? And my dad just happened to be at the table. He's like I think I would have taught us character anyway caricatures. So which is funny. Because I've done so many of them. But you know a lot of like the exaggerated features and like you know weird juxtaposition and things kind of things cool cool okay. So where you you were living in like two different houses basically yes. We're very different when it comes to like You know consuming art in listening to music. they were a little different. I mean both my parents were were are into music and and very supportive of me pursuing any kind of creative expression that I That I could come up with definitely. My Dad was a little bit more. You know it's funny to think that at when I was that age he was aged that I am now so he was like kind of like going to shows and he was going to plays and his friends. We're like in community theater productions and some of his friends were playing gigs that I'd go to and it was kind of the type of stuff that I would think is cool now Were the types of things that he was happy. Having like at friends houses that had like a bunch of records and they put things on And actually one of the things that my dad would take me to. As a kid was this he had a friend that was really into making a diy movie projects and he would have people over department and do showings of them. And like sometimes I would stay over at this guy's house. It's funny how these details are kind of like. I don't know how you know. Barely sort of remember how my dad and this each other but he sort of showed me how to use this like animation machine that he had and that's kind of what I recall from it so there was kind of that type of social situation. Interesting adults yeah interesting adults. That were I think that the moving back and forth between the two cities did it did stunt my friendships a little bit with people my own age because it would be this thing where. I would have friends in the school year and then I would come back and actually moved schools a bunch because we moved around Vancouver a lot so there was a kind of had to start over a few times and then like I would come back from the summer break. And I'd been in Calgary where I didn't really know anybody come back to Vancouver and like all. My friends had two months is kind of a long time. You're that young. And so they would. They would have all these like shared memories of crazy things done together during the summer when they were like free. And I'd been like kind of on the computer at my mom's house in Calgary in the suburbs and pick mostly drying and like doing doing stuff like that and so it was. Yeah there was a lot of like hanging out with interesting adults and kind of our projects. How do you think that affects your ability to like make friends now or connected with people? Now I am so I do have kind of A. It's a good question. I didn't realize this was going to be like therapy. But we're going there. We get rum. Yeah we got you are Peter. Moulvi MONTHS CLINK YEP Placed the clank in front of the MIC. Make sure it's nice and clear. I mean I'm very grateful for the friendships that I have for a while. After I left home I was used to moving a lot and I think it might have just been that used to like sort of uprooting and figuring out what it meant to be somewhere else so i. After we after graduating high school I Victoria. And then I was living in Winnipeg for a couple of years and then I lived in Toronto for a couple years and there was like a few weeks that I would spend in various other cities and kind of had this like cycle of starting to feel a little bit like belonged in some certain community in in a place and then I would have this. This weird need to go like I would feel sort of taken away by something else. And that's how in ended up in New York which like for such a transient city. I think a lot of people will go spend three years in New York. They're Kinda like excited and then they're done with it and they need to like go somewhere that they can park their car and you know. Now I'm I'm married there and that's that seems like the place and it's been like six years so at least six years of living there.

If at least for I don't know if it's exclusively mad magazine. But I believe it's it's just the word in general for comic book, art or magazine are, but yeah, that's sometimes you'll see when when we can't come up with chicken fat. We'll just have the word chicken fat in the background. But yeah, it's funny because we'll will often be thinking of Simpson's stuff and linen reality. It is. It's so. Oh, let's go and feeding on each other.

So I liked her co smile to hit something where she has been showing up photos throughout history. And and the last one was her in shining. Yeah. It's it's an interesting job. But all I'm saying is I as someone who does it on a small scale, I deeply appreciate the the amount of work that continues to be put into these background signs and puns. And it really is amazing. It's own kind of it's its own show into in work, work wise and stuff, so. Also the backgrounds. I believe we talked about this maybe little bit when we touched on disenchantment once before with you, but the backgrounds themselves are also so different from other Matt graining shows there, so lush universes very rich and beautiful really does kind of go to that game of thrones. And it's very it's very intentional too. Because first of all we fought in creating this show that have been a thousand fit to see TV shows and movies and books and unless we do something that's really great at enjoyable and lush than don't do it. And so it's very intentional backgrounds are much more kind of like storybook and have that hand painted. He'll to it. Yeah. Yes. That's one of the very first things we told to like rough draft perspective of the background.
