For our 100th episode, we are delighted to welcome Seth Godin to the podcast. Seth is a bestselling author and his new book “The Practice” is subtitled “shipping creative work.” and is a mission to inspire everyone to make a powerful commitment to themselves and their art.
In this lively conversation, he explains why the world doesn’t need any more paintings (and what it actually needs instead); challenges us all to be artists not painters, explains why he never reads his reviews, and shares his thoughts on balancing art and commerce.
He suggests that “Buying a painting is a souvenir of the way it made you feel to look at the canvas” and how understanding this can help us as artists.
We also discuss the importance of knowing your audience, a great definition of what it means to have taste (!) and why picking that audience determines the course of your art career.
As you will hear, Seth is a genuine art lover and has lots of interesting stories to tell including some tips about how NOT to be an unhappy painter 🙂
Grab a notebook and prepare to be inspired!
For this episode we though you would like to see the conversation too so we have a video version as well 🙂
