Long-term readers of our blog are well-aware that we are huge fans of Ian Ruhter’s work. Evidently, so is the good people at Steez Magazine who just posted an interview with Ian. It’s good. You should read it.

We’d also like to take this opportunity to once again highlight a few of our favorite Ian Ruhter videos: MadisonAmerican DreamWhen Death Do Us Part and When Dream Collide. Every single one of them is worth watching more than once.
