LIA Cast 195 - Sketchbook Summer

Art challenges can be a fun way to discover some new capacity and motivation, level up or stay in shape, and maybe make some new connections in your field. They can also be a taxing commitment to cram into an already busy schedule!

This time Jerzy talks with Brandon Dayton and Matthew Armstrong, co-creators of Sketchbook Summer, a new art challenge in which participants are invited to try to fill an entire sketchbook in 30 days. How is sketching different from other forms of drawing? Are there any practical benefits to this challenge?

What are some ways we can advocate on our own through our creative projects and even better: connect with organizations who are using creative projects for advocacy?

LIA Cast 192 - How Do You Know If It's Good?

We’ve all had creative sessions where we feel like nothing in particular was accomplished. Maybe we’ve shipped something and have no idea how it was received--or if it was received at all.

When we do creative work, even if we don’t intend on a large audience’s engagement, some kind of feedback helps us know that we’re hitting some kind of goals or making something that meets our intentions.

Join us for a conversation about the role of feedback and reflection to get a clearer sense of your work.
