Denver stand-up Josh Blue is not just a comedian, but a visual artist as well.
The creative process for his art typically involves a big chunk of wood, some sawzalls, chainsaws and chisels.
“And I’m barefoot and stoned,” Blue says, laughing.
On The Cannabist Show with editor-in-chief Ricardo Baca, Blue says he dabbles in wood carvings and sculpting, producing African-style masks. Now, he’s working on a 6-foot-tall totem pole.
“I lived in Africa, I was born in Cameroon,” Blue says. “And when I was 15, I lived in Senegal. I was really influenced by the carvings they did over there. So I kind of brought it home and did an American version.”
