Dean Haspiel interview at The Creative Independent

In one of my favorite conversations, Whitney Matheson interviewed me for The Creative Independent: Cartoonist and playwright Dean Haspiel on the value of community building, why imposter syndrome can sometimes be a good thing, and trying to tell stories that can somehow stand the test of time.

"Even though financially I’m still eating peanut butter sandwiches and takeout Chinese food, on paper I’m a success, because right now I’m in this awesome autonomous space where I’m writing and drawing something that I own and am getting paid for. That is the prize, isn’t it? That’s what success is."

Right? Gosh, I sure hope so. There's lots of stuff to chew on in this deep dive. Be sure to check out my 5 recommendations at the end of the interview.
