You are dedicated to your craft. You have spent countless hours honing your skills. You have a boundless curiosity for the underlying theories and structure of communicating ideas. You are the artist who finds the connections between your medium and other communications media. You are the artist who relishes in a setback; after all, it's a new opportunity to learn and grow. Inspiration is more than a haphazard mode of thought requiring constant nurturing: it is your natural state of mind.

Lean Into Art is where you go when you're ready to push yourself as an artist in new ways. As a place to learn communication arts online it combines an art-journaling approach, the best of live and time-shifted classes, and a recognition system that encourages students to finish projects, give feedback, even participate in teaching.

It's a big art challenge - that's why we put the enticing warning in the name. You have to lean into it.

We've talked about sustaining our creativity on Lean Into Art Cast 89, but what about leveraging our creativity to sustain us? How do you avoid the creative work you don't want to do and find the jobs that bring you creative (and monetary) satisfaction?

We're joined once again by Ryan Estrada, author of the blog post How to Get Hired. Together we'll talk about how characterizing the work you want to do and presenting yourself well might bring you closer to landing the gigs you are excited about.

And don't forget-the deadline for LIA Quest 10 - This Character Is Lying is December 4!
