Presentation

Overview

Jessica Hische is a lettering artist, author, illustrator, letterpress printer, type designer, mother, procrastiworker, and a million other things. In this practical antidote to a “quit your job and do what you love” talk, she’ll explain that the key to answering the question we’ve all been asked since we were little—”What you want to be when you grow up?”—is finding out who you are in the first place.

She’ll talk through some of the tools that have worked for her, from the scientific to the witch-crafty, and how the answer to “Who am I?” is never static—it shifts and transforms over and over again as you grow, change, mature, hormonally implode, etc.

Objective

A vulnerable talk examining how to right our creative ship through crises and life transitions.

Target Audience

Creatives of all levels who struggle with creative block and the occasional existential crisis.
