Taking breaks makes you a better person | Art Lessons Podcast, Episode 9

Taking breaks makes you a better person | Art Lessons Podcast, Episode 9

Today's episode starts somber, but finishes strong, and it's all comes down to how much space we give ourselves to do good work. Today I'm talking about taking breaks when it's necessary, and sometimes unnecessary, because putting distance between ourselves and the work could possibly be the best decision we ever make. QOTD: "What is the best advice you would give someone coming out of school or college?" - Jessica (aka @Crystal_the_cc on Instagram) AOTD: Beckie Warren IG: http://instagram.com/girlseesart Web: http://girlseesart.com/uncommon-beauty

Thinking outside to box of your art

One day, I was walking down the street, and Billie Holiday was singing in a shop window. I was so shook, I had to stop and gaze in wonder, as did everyone else around me, stopping traffic so we could capture the moment while being entertained by this angel behind glass. No, this wasn't a dream. It really happened, and the event shook me up so much, I decided to dedicate an entire podcast episode to the woman, and why her brilliance is something we should all appreciate. Question of the Day: "What do you think of Patreon, and do...

The Secret to My Success | Art Lessons Podcast, Episode 003

I need to give a hat tip to fellow Youtuber, Roberto Blake, for making this episode possible. He posed a question about what is the one thing that holds us back the most. I confided that it was a mix between time, and spreading myself too thing across too many places. His response to my concern was a genius way of rethinking the way I operated, and it's made me a lot more productive, and effective. Rate and subscribe to the show on iTunes: http://apple.co/2wBwE2M

Inside the Sausage Factory  |  Art Lessons - Episode 002

I have learned a lot about myself while trying to pursue this art career. The important part is not the details of the things I have been taught by life, but learning to be mindful of the lessons when they come at me. When I keep a watchful eye out for learning opportunities, amazing things happen. For instance, I've learned to build upon my passion, turn it into a purpose, and how to take action on that so it becomes something tangible for the world to enjoy. Am I the best at this? No. Not yet, at least, but I'm...

Introducing the Art Lessons Podcast... Sorta

Introducing the Art Lessons Podcast... Sorta

It's official—I have started yet another podcast, but this one is different than any other I've done before. Ok, it's not hugely different, but instead of me interviewing people about their creative careers, I'm sharing my own journey as a creative professional, in the style and standards that you would expect from me. Granted, if this is the first time you've heard me cast a pod, well then here you go. You'll learn to appreciate my approach over time, which is good, because I need at least another episode or two to shake off the recording rust. Today, I'm talking...
