The Creative South Podcast focuses on the “people” behind the design. The best way for us to do that is to talk to people and listen to them share their stories. Not necessarily the stories you hear from the stage, but ones you get when you actually have a conversation with someone. We want to have conversations not only with the presenters and people hosting workshops, but the vendors and attendees. We also want to talk to other creative people, not just the designers, illustrators, and photographers, but the developers, writers, musicians, comedians, chefs and anyone else that uses their creative talent. It's not about being from the South, that's just where we live!

My guest today is Blake Stevenson. Blake is a full-time designer and illustrator, based out of Toronto, Canada, working a day job in marketing. He fills the rest of his time as the guy behind Jetpacks and Roller-skates, creating illustrations based on his love of music, video games, comics, and old-school pop culture. I talk with Blake about dealing with imposter syndrome, the importance of communications skills in the real world, how his illustrations have started to change now that he’s had a kid, and being able to give back to the creative community, right after this.
