Episode 12

with Lauren Martin

In this episode, I chat with New York based illustrator and musician, Lauren Martin. Lauren’s sunny, smiley, vibrant illustrations and animations are full of the kind of optimism and encouragement we all need right now.

Lauren’s journey to full-time illustration is a recent one, having just set out on that path earlier this year. In that short amount of time, she’s already carved out her unique style and quite a following and client list to go with it.

She talks about how having to pause touring with Frankie Cosmos, the band she plays keyboard and guitar with, has allowed her to take this shot at illustration. And how the timing of it all was kismet.

She also discusses how going to therapy, working on her personal development and going through a spiritual awakening opened up everything for her. I too, went through a similar path, and it was great to find such a kindred spirit to discuss these topics with. So I’m really excited to share this one with you all.
