Join Adam J. Kurtz as he gives his acclaimed lecture, anecdotes and advice. He'll talk about not waiting for permission to make personal work that is actually personal, and how he's made that his whole thing somehow. He'll also guide you on drawing and writing activities from his latest book, PICK ME UP: A Pep Talk For Now & Later. This weird, optimistic book pushes you along with unexpected prompts, “existential activities,” some dark humor, and pages that keep you #connected, even when you feel alone. More than anything, you’ll build your own guide now for figuring shit out later – because someone telling you to “cheer up” is infuriating, but a pep talk from yourself might just work. Watch yourself change as you record and reflect on where you are and where you’re going.
