Caroline Lee: Illustrator and Podcaster - Tom Ray's Art Podcast 210418

Caroline Lee is a podcaster based in England who in the past few years has started learning illustration and graphic design. I have actually known Caroline and her husband Dave Lee for many years from their podcast The Bugcast.  So I was really happy when Caroline had agreed to be on the show to talk about her new venture to learn illustration to expand her career. Plus, it's always nice to talk to them! We discuss all the online drawing prompts and lessons she's been taking and her experience from using a tablet to trying to figure out vector programs like Adobe Illustrator.

Tom Ray's Art Podcast

Each episode I meet artists and creators from beginners, hobbyists and professionals. We talk about how they create, promote themselves and in the meantime still manage their own well-being.

A blog about my daily life since I decided to sell collectibles and pop-culture items I collect on eBay to help support my art career instead of taking on freelance work.

Can't stop thinking.

I know it won't work but I can't help trying things.

Artist anxiety. How did this artist get past it?

In this clip from the Art Podcast, artist and YouTuber Ben Walker Storey tells me about how he dealt with the anxiety of promoting his artwork using video. And also how these videos turned into a series about drawing goths from the 80s. How the idea came about for the drawing goths series that you're doing? It's weird because it started like this very definitive spark moment of not knowing what the hell is going on in the world with the pandemic. So that was a very global thing that everybody was going through and then for me, I had been seeking help for some mental health issues. I thought I had ADHD basically.  Things were kind of getting kind worse as far as being able to keep track of my life and my projects. Just jumping from one thing to another without even realizing I had left what I was working on and all of a sudden I'm in another room. And I was kind of going off sometimes and barking at people like strangers for no good reason you know? It just wasn't good.

Still nothing.

All very disorienting since I'm still not sure what happened.

Locked account.

The worst part is that I don't even have a support number to call to find out what was going on with my account to begin with.

Sore tongue.

I don't remember biting it yesterday. Could I have done it in my sleep?

Deflecting.

Eh. It happens. Oddly, it makes me think of trying to create more things.
