Your Creative Push
About This Show
Your Creative Push is the podcast that pushes YOU to pursue your creative passion, even though you have a busy, full-time life. Twice a week, Youngman Brown interviews artists, musicians, writers, photographers, graphic designers, and other inspirational creative individuals in an attempt to get them to inspire you to put aside your excuses and START DOING WORK. Each artist opens up to YOU, revealing the things that hold THEM back on a daily basis, and how they FIGHT THROUGH IT. They then give you one final push, in an attempt to motivate you to start doing work as soon as the episode is over. If you have a full-time job or full-time responsibilities and WISH that you had the COURAGE and MOTIVATION to FINALLY do that thing that has been on your mind, this podcast is for you!

266: GET REWARDED by going for your dreams (w/ Hannah Yata)
5 days ago
Hannah Faith Yata is half Japanese and was born and raised in a small town in Georgia. She grew up with a deep love of nature and animals passed down by the beautiful surroundings in the country and her mother. In her paintings, Yata seeks to interweave the parallels of the unconscious with the struggle of the natural environment and how it relates to views regarding the body of the woman and that of nature. Full shownotes: http://yourcreativepush.com/hannahyata In this episode, Hannah discusses: -Her early career as she worked other jobs while doing her own work in her free time. -Doing work for B.o.B. -The role that nature (and human interference) plays in her pieces. -Her process and the amount of planning that goes into her pieces. -Magic and synchronicity. -How you often get rewarded for going after the thing you’ve always dreamed of going after. -The difference between commissions and personal work and striking a balance between them. -The importance of surrounding yourself with other likeminded creative individuals. -Learning from her husband, Jean Pierre Arboleda’s experiences. -Some of the creative resistances that she faces. -Not getting too caught up in what other people are doing, but keeping your head down and doing your own best work. -How to bridge the gap between lack of skill and taste. Hannah's Final Push will inspire you to stop thinking about money as a measure of success, but rather as a means of creative exchange! Quotes: “You never want to put yourself in a place that you can’t do your own work.” “I can’t tell you how many people asked me, ‘Why are you going to college for art? This is a waste of a degree.” “I feel like half the time you are making things, you’re in a frustrated state.” “Do your best work. Don’t look at anybody else. Keep doing what you feel is comfortable and right for yourself.” “I did a lot of work and I sucked at a lot of it, but I kept making it and learning from those mistakes.” “I really believe in creative people and I think that the world needs more of them.” Links mentioned: Grit: The Power of Passion

Do creative types need daily inspiration?
My first thought was- maybe not. I am a painter, my husband is a writer. We both have full time jobs, and was interested to see what's new with this new podcast. Curiously enough, the good mix of guests so far has made me wonder... do we need daily inspiration? I still think not, but this is a podcast I would like to catch up with every once in a while to see what the guests have to share.
