On November 5th, Tim's new book, Alice in Tumblr-land: And Other Fairytales for a New Generation comes out. Join us for this conversation about:
- Changing careers and going all-in with creative work
- "Millenials" and Tim's own journey through his 20s
- Not apologizing for one's work (despite the temptation to do just that)
- Having an unconventional drawing education
- Finding work that sits well with your soul, and
- The benefits of looking at your accomplishments through the 5-Years-Ago Lens.
