Overshare Podcast: Jon Burgerman
Is Not a Doodler
WORKING NOT WORKING
Overshare is a podcast and event series hosted by Working Not Working co-founder Justin Gignac. In a world of carefully curated portfolio sites and Instagram feeds, Justin sits down with his favorite creatives to get past the highlights and discuss the tough stuff we don't talk about in public often enough.
Episode 9 of Season 2 was recorded in front of a live audience at Camp David in Brooklyn, NY. Host Justin sat down with the incomparable Jon Burgerman. He’s an artist and author whose ability to play is contagious and inspiring. His Instagram brings so much joy on a daily basis. Whether it’s bringing every imaginable inanimate object to life with googly eyes in his Instagram stories or the characters he creates, everything will make you smile.
Jon lives by the motto “It’s Great to Create” and his work is a reminder of the joy of creating. All of us had those skills to make and play as kids and some of us were fortunate to not lose it.
In this episode, you will learn that the key to creative freedom is really to just stop caring what other people think and you’ll learn how to reframe your thinking when jealousy of other peoples’ work or success inevitably creeps up.
