Jay Marksman (That's not his real name, by the way. Shh, don't tell anyone!)
is a game developer, artist and writer from Helsinki, Finland.

Interested in various storytelling mediums — including, but not limited to games, movies, TV shows, books and comics — Jay talks with talented people about their creative processes, their relationship to different kinds of stories, art, and whatever they want to talk about, really.

"I listen to a lot of podcasts, interviews and panel discussions, and I always have
a lot to say about the things that are being discussed in these shows,
but there's always one problem: I'm not on these shows — so I decided to start my own.

I love so many creative things it's hard to keep count sometimes. To give you an idea, my current projects that I'm either actively working on, or have started and would like to finish someday, include three videogames (and at least one full soundtrack for one of them), two novels and a dozen or so short stories, a small Android app, a board game, and this podcast. I also probably forgot something, and this
obviously doesn't include projects that I haven't even thought of yet.

And I have finished* projects, too, so it's not like I jump around and never get anything done. I'm really just passionate about a lot of different things.
It's just who I am.

Enter, Cave Paintings and Campfires. On the show I can talk about all of these things and more, with people who are as passionate about them as I am, and on top of that, they are often doing them for a living."

* yanneyanen.com has some of my finished game projects. You can buy my first novel here. I also have a full-time job as an artist in a game company (not much choice not to finish my assignments there).
