How to make it as an artist – Video Interview with Joanna Hedley AKA Ms Led

This was a great talk with Joanna. It was very informative and a lot of fun to dig into Joanna’s past as an artist and the varied paths it took to get noticed. The video and a full transcript are below.

The three things I would take away is continue to be active. Find your art community and uh, you do need to believe in yourself. So find your support system, whether it’s a friend, whether it’s family that can believe in you, but either way, surround yourself with those people that are going to push you and make sure you’re pushing yourself into new things and the people that support you.

Chicago Love Note – day time

This was a video filmed and edited by Michael Rataj on a trip downtown to Chicago.  It’s added to the homepage so it’s the first thing you see when you visit the site, but I wanted to make sure it gets seen via a blog! 🙂

I’d love to hear your thoughts.  It’s been a project that’s been kicking around my head for quite a while and the time to do it presented itself recently.  There are a few more ideas to finish the whole project, but this is a start.
