#75 - The Chili Man

Archispeak Episode 75 dives deep covering several topics centered around the studio and office environment. We discuss the evolving world of sketching with new tools such as Apple's new iPad Pro and Apple Pencil (Check out Cormac's examples below), music, fashion and new hire hazing rituals. We even mix in some office competitions, with Cormac winning his office's big Chili Cook Off!
