Welcome to the distant future! We’re talking about goals, aims, resolutions, and intentions, and what they can mean. (And which of them sends Tiff hiding under her desk.)
We do a little end of the year wrap-up and talk about things we’ve learned and things we’ve tried. We’d love to hear your thoughts - and we want to know your goals and resolutions for next year! Drop us a line on Twitter or instagram or at [email protected]
Makers gonna make and makers gonna give. What kind of value and values do we place on homemade and handmade gifts?
Tiff has lured Jamie from one studio into another and we talk about finding your voice — more than once — and about her winding path with and without art.
We do some final Inktober check-in, but mostly we talk about the idea that real art comes from pain and real artists don’t dull their pain. (Note: If you’re not feeling up to the heavy stuff right now, you can still listen up to the 09.55 mark!)
We calm some fears about X-acto knives, and talk about writing as a creative pursuit. Do people treat it differently from painting or knitting?
Noisemakers and party hats - we’re now part of the Relay FM family! Also party hats and decorations because we’re talking about Halloweeny crafts and such. Plus some inktober check-in.
We answer a couple of listener questions, and then chew on Inktober, a 30-day inking challenge. What’s the deal, how do we feel about it, what are our strategies?
It can be hard to separate your sense of self worth from your output – either quantity or quality. But that’s probably not the best way to handle your identity as a creative person. (Or is it? Julia briefly plays devil’s advocate.) Also: Spaghetti-Os.
Dedicated follower of fashion or not – sewing is an amazing maker-skill to have, and we talk a little bit about why.
