Podcast: Embracing The Spark and The Grind (with Erik Wahl)
There are two parts of the creative process that live in constant tension with one another: the spark, which is the exciting idea, and the grind, which is the process of bringing that idea into the world. Today’s guest, Erik Wahl, is a graffiti artist and teacher, and he’s the author of a new book called The Spark and The Grind. We have a wide-ranging conversation about creativity, grit, success vs. failure, expectations, and more.
