Do you struggle with keeping up an art practice? Do the 100 day challenges you see on social media overwhelm you? You are not alone! On today’s episode, we have Alanna Cartier, an illustrator, to share some of her wisdom on creating and maintaining a daily art practice. We loved this conversation and left inspired and ready to get back to creating daily!

About Alanna
Alanna is an illustrator, collector of cookbooks, mother to one fat cat, and cultivator of genius hair. She believes that talent is a myth that can stop us from pursuing our creative passions, and that practice makes progress and perfection is imaginary (and boring to boot!). She believes in community and collaboration over competition, and helps run the Everyday Creatives, an online creative cooperative. Alanna is a self-professed nerd for learning, and spends a generous amount of time on Skillshare, where she teaches and hunting for new classes to love.
