TSS Podcast #1 (July 7, 2007)
Interview with Thomas Fluharty

tsspodcast.jpgArtist and blogger Thomas Fluharty is the busiest person I know, so when an opportunity opened to interview him this past Saturday morning I grabbed my microphone and met him at a local restaurant. Fluharty is known around the world for his illustrations and especially his editorial caricatures. His award-winning “Sir Hillary Poised for a Takeover” painting is one example. But my personal favorite will always be “Master and Commander,” a painting that caught my attention as a Weekly Standard subscriber long before I paid any attention to its artist. But more amazing than his illustrations is Tom’s personal testimony of God’s sovereign grace. Saturday was his 23rd anniversary of being saved on a street corner in New York City. Tom reminds us, in his own words, that being a Christian is not synonymous with being an American — but a radical experience where a sinful, idol-worshiping soul is unveiled to the infinite joy in Christ. The interview provided us a great excuse to launch the inaugural TSS podcast.

  1. Tom and I graduated high school and college/art school together. I have watched him go from the lost high school kid into a great brother in the Lord. Oh, and I grew up in church, but my life changed when I saw the change in Tom’s life. I was on an airplane after visiting Tom in New York… I prayed, “God, I don’t know you like Tom does, but I want to.” My life has never been the same since. I ended up moving to New York… Tom introduced me to my wife of now, 21 years! (Tom left out this one detail… he used to listen to Sade!)

  2. Thank you Scott for this! I should have opened the podcast with “Smooth Operator.” :-) Tom continues to bless me and I wanted to bless others through this interview. Thanks for stopping in to give further evidence of how God has worked through Tom for the glory of Christ! Tony

  3. Tony, I should send you a pic of Tom when he was in his “Flock of Seagulls” fashion era… ;) 1982… a very bad year for fashion… and hair.
