“I would say my personal style is a lot like if Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood, in the Hundred Acre Wood, met Shel Silverstein and the Far Side, and had a love child.”
No better description could exist of the work of Chaunine Joy. Her artwork, her stories, and her outlook on life are equally delightful.
In this episode, Chaunine talks in detail about how she went from a girl who loved reading, to painting over old pages in books, to turning her love of whimsical “literary art” into a business. Her work is adored by people everywhere, in fandoms of every genre.
She’s even painted Kermit the Frog as Andy Warhol’s Marilyn Monroe! How much more amazing can you get!
Also mentioned in this episode: The War of Art, by Steven Pressfield. There’s no better book to inspire your creativity from finally flourishing, especially in the face of that resistance you constantly feel.
So “show up” to your work (whatever it is), get started, and Choose To See the Good Stuff! After all…Joy is always there to be found, if you’re looking for it!
