Since I’ve been working on the Sketchbook Project for long stretches of time, I’ve been experimenting with listening to all kinds of media.
Movies in the background have not been good – I never looked up and they sounded like Charlie Brown’s teacher (Waa, waa, waa).
My go-to is usually radio (commercial, internet, etc.), which has been fine but at some point, the repetition of songs is very noticeable and annoying. And the playlists I’ve created are getting old!
But, in the last few weeks, I’ve been loving podcasts playing along with my creating. And not just any podcasts, but ones that having inspiring, motivational and creativity aspects. Surprisingly, I am able to pay attention to them AND to my drawing. I’ve loaded up on “The Accidental Creative”, “The Unmistakable Creative”, “The James Altucher Show”, “The Portfolio Life”, “The Good Life Project”, “Happier With Gretchen Rubin”, “Gently Mad”, and “Six Pixels of Separation” (all on iTunes).
What do you listen to? If you have any creativity podcast recommendations, I’d love to hear them – literally!
