This week on Starving Artist we've got a bonus episode for you! It’s not a traditional episode where I convince an artist I admire to tell me all their secrets, instead it’s a behind the scenes look at Starving Artist told through a conversation with a good friend of mine, Audrey, who interviewed me for the NAVA: in conversation podcast.
In this interview, we talk about where the idea for Starving Artist came from, my next project - The Big Feels Club, and why I regularly consider studying medicine instead of making art.
And if you like the cut of Audrey's jib, find her on instagram. She makes amazing work, like this piece installed in the women's bathroom of an exhibition she was in, or my personal fav, her ongoing Psychiatrist Waiting Room Series.

All the linky goodness for this episode:
- The short film I made (with a lot of help from my good mate Paddy) (love you Paddy) whilst in a psych hospital: The Smallest Life
- The podcast that I've been making with my ex-fiance for the past 18-months, Being Honest With My Ex
- In the month leading up to launching Starving Artist my instagram feed featured a lot of sunrises and talk of creative terror, like this.
- You can read all of Bo Burnham's Reddit AMA (Ask Me Anything) here (it's really damn good). If you don't know Bo Burnham you can check out his most recent comedy special Make Happy on Netflix, or you can watch the infamous last song (which touches on performative authenticity) on YouTube. I cried a lot at this part of the show. It was midnight and I was alone in my room. Many feelings were had.
- You can join in the conversation about Day Job Transparency on Instagram or Facebook
