Stop making the art business so much more complicated that it needs to be, Dave. That’s the voice in my head when I hear some of the reality checks that Adam drops on me this time around. It’s another rousing conversation about selling success tips.
Let me be clear, I do not support the idea of Mercury's path through the universe having any control over what happens to us here on Earth, but some people do. This podcast is for them, and maybe fore you too.
I’m sharing an older episode, one of the first of Adam and i talking, and one of my favorite chats about art and commerce. There’s plenty of new folks here who may have not heard this one, and I think you all will enjoy it again.
It wasn’t without some serious wrangling that I finally got Adam back into the Open Air Studio to talk about work and stuff. Of course, knowing us, there’s a lot of “stuff” before we get into the work, but I promise you, there’s a lot of valuable creative business conversation.
YES! It’s back. Art Lessons returns from hiatus, and in this episode, I talk about all the things that I discovered about myself and my work while on break. There’s a lot of good things to discuss, so let’s get into it.
I'm declaring this month Make Stuff May, and will be putting the podcast and YouTube videos aside for the reminder of the month, but not before I go on a rant about a few things that I've been thinking about lately.
In this week's episode, I'm flying solo again, and discussing what I feel is one of the biggest problems with creative world, and it has to do with what we do and don't do for other creative people. What might happen, I imagine, if we stopped only streaming our music and actually bought from the ones we admired most?
Today on the pod, I have a very special guest, and this episode is a different than anything else I've done here. This time I'm in the mentor chair, which is kinda weird, once you find out who I'm talking with. Say hello to artist and designer, Michele Morgan.
Here we go again, and this time it's Adam and I talking about selling stuff. * Selling stuff in street fairs * Selling stuff on Instagram * Selling stuff to people who didn't know they wanted your stuff until you helped them decide
Last week, I spoke about all the projects getting my attention—the art, the newsletter, and this podcast. This time I go deep on how I plan on making all the things work together, in concert with one another, to help propel all things forward. At least that’s the plan.
In this episode, Adam and I talk about print on demand and whether it's feasible as an income opportunity. We also get deep into a conversation about what happens in the future when so many things are automated, easily created by anyone, and nothing has the value that it once did.
Another solo episode because sometimes there just isn't enough time to do all the things we want to do. Adam wanted to be here but life gets in the way. And it's with that idea that I'm talking about all of us being enough for all we are trying to accomplish.
This one gets heavy. This one gets real. If you've been paying attention, you'll know that I had a pretty traumatic week, and Adam also had some remarkable stuff happen, so we get into that stuff early, and it's a much different conversation this time around.
