Humanitou: Conversations of Humanness + Creativity
16: Lisa Congdon, illustrator & author, on failure, impostor syndrome, LGBTQ rights, meditation, breast cancer and being a change-agent
Lisa Congdon is an illustrator, and the author of eight books, most recently: “Find Your Artistic Voice: The Essential Guide to Working Your Creative Magic.” Her client list runs deep, including the Obama Campaign, the United Nations, Lululemon, Crate & Barrel, MoMA, REI, AirBnB, Martha Stewart Living … In this conversation, we talk about failure, impostor syndrome, and the stories and experiences that shape us. We get into spirituality and authenticity, conformity and fear. Lisa speaks on white privilege and anti-racism, and her activism for LGBTQ rights. We talk about a crucial, "magical" chapter in her story while living in San Francisco in the 90s, her breast cancer diagnosis in recent months, and what she's learned from friends-slash-idols Brené Brown, Elizabeth Gilbert and Debbie Millman.
