Episode 9

with Chrissie Abbott

In this episode, I’m chatting with illustrator, designer, art director and all around amazing human being, Chrissie Abbott. Chrissie is one of my favorite creatives and a huge inspiration to me, so I was super excited to be able to speak with her and peer into her world a little bit.

We talk about Chrissie’s creative journey to where she is now, our mutual love for personal growth and New Age inspiration, how making personal work helps evolve her client work, how she struggled with money when she was starting out as a freelancer (which is a struggle most of us can relate to I’m sure), how she recently created posters for likes of Courtney Barnett and Tame Impala, and much more.

We also dive into the topic of gratitude, a concept Chrissie was introduced to at an early age by her mom, and a tool she has used throughout her journey to keep things in perspective. I’ve personally been struggling with gratitude recently, so it was really nice to hear Chrissie’s thoughts on this topic. It’s a challenging time for all of us in one way or another, so I’m hoping this episode will leave you feeling a bit better about things.
