In lieu of our traditional Quit Your Day Job interview, today we have a special video installment! Jessica Doyle is a Canadian writer, artist and influential Etsy seller. Her blog, Art & Musings, is deeply honest, touching, inspiring and contains beautiful illustrations and images. She grapples with serious issues of addiction and how it affects her life and work.
Elastic Lab recently released a video interview of Jessica, called “Working the 9 to 5 Job Was Killing Me,” for their Culture of Content Creation Series. Here it is!
We love the Culture of Content Creation Series’ mission:
“In today’s world of social media, digital voices rant and rave, ruminate on their experiences, give life to the world’s causes, bring fame to the worthy, bring shame to the unworthy, denounce dishonesty and evil, and preach a million variations on truth. But while the voices are loud, the social media movement is, for the most part, a faceless movement. Conversations, discussions, relationships, business partnerships, and friendships exist where face-to-face encounters do not. Such is the nature of the Internet, and why this project, The Culture of Content Creation, was launched.
“Since the early part of 2008, Elastic Lab has commissioned video interviews with digital content creators of all kinds — bloggers, vloggers, reviewers, journalists, filmmakers, educators, artists, technologists, consultants, and many others who defy labels.”
