S02 Episode 10: What mistakes do you wish you would have known when you started?

The shop owners this season should have some wisdom they can pass along to those of us trying to make it in the world creatively.

So this week I ask the question:
What mistakes do you wish you would have known when you started?

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.

Here's a list of the places I talk to in each episode.
Each week I ask one question and find out where the conversation takes us, to learn more about how these people decided to take their process one step further.

S03 Episode 7: American Trash, Graphic Design

Listen: Apple Podcasts | RadioPublic | Google Podcasts | YouTube
I found American Trash while looking at stories located in the Madison area on Instagram. I liked the style. It reminded me of the type of skateboard art that has always appealed to me. I sent him a message and we ended up meeting each other at the Johnson Public House.

S03 Episode 6: Gavin Folgert, Animator

Listen: Apple Podcasts | RadioPublic | Google Podcasts | YouTube
I went to a local animation meet up in February and afterward Gavin had posted a stop-motion short he made on the meet up's Facebook event page. I've only made 2D animation and have always wanted to try stop-motion. So, I reached out to Gavin to learn more about what he does. He met with me at the Colectivo Coffee Shop on Monroe St. After the interview we got together and made this little claymation short film. https://youtu.be/lIOPX95zI2Y

Also, another one of my pop-up interviews, I meet fabric artist Stacy Stone.

Louis Prima.

The lyrics to the song "Just a Gigolo" by Louis Prima are actually really depressing sounding when you write them out. But damn if it isn't a fun song to belt out!
