Episode 17

with Grace Miceli

In this episode, I chat with Brooklyn based artist Grace Miceli. Grace works across multiple mediums including illustration, animation, comics, product design, murals, and she’s recently added published author to that list. She has an amazing new book coming out on May 4th, titled How to Deal: With Fear, Failure, and Other Daily Dreads.

Grace has worked with an impressive roster of clients including The New Yorker, Apple, Nike, Warner Bros., The New York Times, Urban Outfitters, Instagram, Adidas, MTV, Adobe, and the list goes on...

Her work explores life’s deeper topics with a colorful, humorous, and nostalgic approach. Viewing her work almost feels like you’re secretly reading through her diary. It’s very specific to her experience and at the same time, so universal.

I’m so thankful that Grace was brave enough to explore the topic of fear with me. We talk about the fear involved in forging your own path as a creative, how personal growth and healing is often painful but ultimately rewarding, how fear can be a sign post pointing us in the right direction, how we can learn to live with fear, what it’s like to write a book and the fears that come along with that process, and much, much more. This was such a wonderful conversation and I’m really excited to share it with you all.

You can find out more about Grace by following her on instagram here, or find her online at gracemiceli.com. And be sure to check out her new book as well.
