How I Tried To Understand My Audience

The audience is like my instrument. It's not just me up there, it's collaborative
— Bobby McFerrin

Creative Conscience helps young people focus on using their talents to share things that matter.

In this episode I tell a group of people I don’t know the crucial importance of focusing on your audience.

That focus, and a clear sense of purpose, is much more important than anything else (don’t make the beginner’s mistake of thinking the subject is most important).

Find out more about Creative Conscience.

As I mention at the end, if you buy my new book and send me proof of purchase, I will send you a signed, limited edition post-card sized print of my own art. Only 100 available (UK only).
