This week on the show my guest is painter and illustrator Esther Pearl Watson. Esther’s paintings draw on memories from her childhood growing up in the Texas suburbs around Dallas Fort worth where her father had the unusual hobby of building large UFOs out of scrap in her backyard.

Esther is also the author of two volumes of the comic Unlovable — a story inspired by a diary Esther found in a gas station — that follows the character  Tammy Pierce through her sophomore year of high school in 1989.

Esther spoke with me from her studio in Los Angeles about her experience growing up in Texas, living with her Dads UFOs, her comic and much more.
