This week we were inspired by two different creative documentaries to consider what we might learn from two rather unexpected masters of their craft; from developing a persona to where we look for outside validation. We discuss constructing in the process of creating, the benefit outside influences can bring – and when to say no! There are also practical suggestions about the benefit of keeping a scrapbook (or at least a record or your progress) and the pitfalls of only seeing one side of success.
You can find the Wham documentary on Netflix and the Sinead O’Connor documentary is available in various places: Sky, Now TV or as a paid one-off in Amazon Prime.
