I’m on a journey to demystify creativity in as many people who will let me. Creativity is the key to problem-solving and I believe we can all agree there are a lot of problems to be solved. I am interviewing creative people in an attempt to tap into the hidden wisdom they have discovered, or inherently have, and share it with the listeners. I had a lot of encouragement in my life. My hope is that people will find encouragement and inspiration from these discussions. Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/creativecourage/support

    Creative Courage Chat #050 with cartoonist, Liza Donnelly

    Creative Courage Chat #050 with cartoonist, Liza Donnelly

    This was a fun interview. My creative journey officially began professionally as a cartoonist. During that time I crossed paths online with Liza Donnelly and Íve admired her work ever since. We had a great chat today about her work and process. She is a writer and award-winning cartoonist with The New Yorker Magazine, where she has been drawing cartoons and writing about culture and politics for forty years. She is also a contributor for CBS News and CNN, creating political cartoons as well as live-drawing special cultural and political events. Donnelly writes and draws for The New York Times and CNN Opinion pages. She is a designated top writer and cartoonist for Medium in politics and feminism where she writes and draws a regular column.

    Liza also delivered a very popular TED talk, which was translated into 38 languages and viewed over 1.4 million times. She is a return speaker at South by Southwest, has delivered talks at the United Nations in New York and Geneva, The New Yorker Festival, five TEDxes (most recently in Charlottesville, Virginia), universities, NGOs and corporate venues in the US and abroad. Donnelly has been a Cultural Envoy for the US State Department, traveling around the world to speak about freedom of speech, cartoons and women’s rights.
