While working a mix of graphic design day jobs, artist Adam J. Kurtz, aka Adam JK, built a career on personal projects and founded a sustainable business along the way. Join Adam for a fun, fast-paced pep talk for creatives across all disciplines — or anyone trying to connect the dots from where they are to where they want to be. Whether you’re just starting out or looking to pivot, this session is crammed full of practical advice and empathy from someone who’s been there.

Vulnerable questions we’ll try to answer include:

  • 2020 taught me some sh*t about myself I didn’t like. Now what?
  • How can I be confident in my work when I know I’m not the best?
  • When will I get my “big break,” and will it change my life?
  • I’m baby, now I’m business? You know??
