    28. Everyone else is just as dumb as me is, terrible sketches, and recovery bagels

❤️

Fiona and Jess are hilarious and open and not afraid to be real about the joyful and not so joyful parts of life, as well as (of course) making art in general. This podcast truly is a source of hope and light and humor every week, and gives me a lot to think about. 👌🏻

New favorite 🤍

Listening to this really is like hanging out with two smart, funny, and deep friends. I love how open Jess and Fiona are about their art and life and how those things intersect. Each episode is a bright spot in my week!

I ❤️ Art Horse!

I listen to many podcasts but Art Horse is my ultimate favorite. Every episode feels like sitting down at a kitchen table and chatting with friends. They’ve always seemed to be talking about EXACTLY what I’m feeling in regard to creativity at the moment and have refreshing/encouraging perspectives. Through listening, I got a spark of creativity that helped me start sculpting again after a block and introduced me to The Artist’s Way, which I’ve found to be extremely rewarding. I’m considering shifting from working in design to becoming an artist, in part because of listening to these women! Thanks Jess & Fiona! I look forward to listening every week and wish the episodes came more frequently!
