Ep# 45: Creative PRO with Darren C. Fisher - Why 'I Can't Draw' is a Myth.
In the first of an occasional series, I'm talking to animation lecturer and graphic communicator, Darren C Fisher about why he doesn't believe people who say they can't draw.
You can find Darren's article that sparked this episode over on The Conversation
He also mentioned a couple of artists you might want to look up. They are Chris Ware
and Ivan Brunetti
I mentioned a book called Grit by Angela Duckworth, which I strongly recommend, and it's never far from my desk. You can watch her TED talk here
