006 - Part 2 Being Self Taught with Adam Kovic

This is the 2nd part of a 2 part series where I discuss our perspectives on being self taught in media and design vs. being taught in a traditional setting such as school or a similar structured program. If you haven't listened to the first part of the series (episode #5) I suggest giving that a spin first so you'll be up to speed. We discuss the pros and cons having 2 different experiences and give our advice for anyone weighing their options in obtaining creative training.

004 - The Enamel Pin Screw Up & Avocado Fest

I have a big confession today. Carrying inventory for an event that you're exhibiting at is a tricky game of "How can I be prepared but not over do it so I'm sitting on products that didn't sell. I ordered some custom enamel pins to sell at Avocado Fest in Fallbrook, CA and made a huge mistake. Listen up so you don't suffer my same fate and get a full recap on my experience at this show.

The pins:
Guacamole - Yeah I know it's extra
Defaced Cat, Avo-gato Toast
*Bonus* Defaced Cat, Egg
