Today’s guest is Reese Lansangan, a 26 year old singer-songwriter, visual artist, graphic designer, fashion designer, and published author; all rolled into one convenient sushi.
In this conversation, we we delved into tricky issues like feelings of jealousy and the habit of comparison in the age of social media, we talked about shame and shaming when you’re putting your work out there, we talked about the stereotypes of being an artist vs. being a sellout.
We also talked about ambition, and why that’s an asset, and not something to be ashamed of. Lots of really tricky stuff, but we discussed it in a very light-hearted way.
