Holly Meyers

Episode Image

I begin my quest to meet artists in Madison, WI with Holly Meyers.

After moving to Madison she was inspired by life changes and her new city's creative energy to devote herself more fully to art. She tells me about how early in life she lost all of her artwork in a fire. Then took that opportunity to reinvent what she does.

We discuss how, even with kids and a job, she finds the time to create. Plus, she found out that claiming your living room as a studio on your taxes is an actual thing you can do!

The question this week is:

If you create things in your spare time, you've probably thought about trying to do it for a living or maybe you're just trying to get the guts to put it out there for the first time.

So what would it take to follow through and actually do it?
To help understand what it's like, listen to what these local creatives say about what they do.

That time I talked on the phone with Shepard Fairey.

He was very nice when we spoke. The whole reason we release our work under creative commons is that we believe in the right to reuse and rebuild creative work. Still, I had hoped to meet HR the singer.
