As you all know the podcast series is about everything I learned about creativity and art on my way breaking free from being a lawyer to become a self standing artist. A lot of the experience I made during the last years has been based on the fact on having been able to work with other inspiring artists, having great talks about how they manage their life. This time I’m joined by my friend and former colleague, UK based visual artist Mike Terry. After being in tour a lot, Mike talked to me exclusively about the difficult balance between creating and perfectionism, what role crows play on his daily walk for inspiration and what being an artist means to him. The show is going to be in English!
