Creative Pep Talk Ep. 119 – Why There’s No Excuse


A podcast of quick casual thoughts on finding your thing in the design and illustration world by illustrator and designer Andy J. Miller.

This episode is a brand new live talk that I did for the AAF chapter in Baton Rouge.

If there’s a paved road to where you’d like to go, the connection has already been made and the opportunity for creativity is already gone.

There’s always an excuse not to do the work you’re here to do, there’s always an obstacle, and in this episode I suppose that maybe that’s not such a bad thing?

Had such a blast going down to the South for this talk, thanks Baton Rouge for having me!
I will both be speaking at this year’s Midwest Craft Con, Feb 10-12.
