Hashtag Authentic Episode 88: Flying your ‘freak flag’, with The Good Ship Illustration

The first interview I’ve done since lockdown began, for this week’s episode I chatted with experienced illustrators, authors and educators Helen Stephens, Katie Chappel and Tania Willis about their joint project, online art school The Good Ship Illustration. In this four-way Skype call we talk about the magic of imperfection, how to find your creative voice in a world that wants you to conform and the magic of flying your freak flag for all to see.
