Joey Feldman is a mixed-media artist from Los Angeles, California. His works are figurative with a frenetic, cartoonish style at their core. With line art applied to its fullest extent, Joey’s initial, fast-sketched lines play a role in the final piece.
In this episode, Joey discusses:
-How he wakes up early and gets right to work because of the way that his creative energy gets drained as he goes about his day.
-DDD and LGD — The feelings of depression that he gets if he doesn’t create something.
-His experiences with drawing O.J. Simpson, Eminem, and Donald Trump.
-His advice for people to deal with haters or with criticism.
-Dealing with procrastination and distractions.
-Freedom (the app) and how it helps to keep him focused.
-How he balances his time.
-The value of to-do lists.
-How meditation helps to energize him and also “clear the slate” in his head.
Joey’s Final Push will inspire you to do the things you don’t want to do, so that you can do the things you want to do!
“I get up at 4:15 every morning and I just have this desire to create.”
“I mean the guy is orange and yellow. How could you not draw him?”
“I think it’s just this day and age of distractions is what holds me back the most.”
“It all goes back to a plan, because left to my own devices, I’ll find 35 other things to do if it’s not written down.”
“Just go and make stuff. Create! Do the things you don’t want to do, so you can do the things you want to do.”
