19 - Daren Magee: Activism in Art - A Voice for Artists & Designers

This week I talked with illustrator Daren Magee. Daren has become a full-time illustrator in the past couple of years and in our conversation we talked about his shift into a full-time artist, the difference between art and design, and social media etiquette. We got into some awesome conversations around cultural appropriation and how artists and designers can value themselves more. This episode is full of great insights from Daren and full of his thoughts on activism in the art community. He fights back against art being stolen from artists in hopes that it will bring awareness to those who simply don't know and that it will give younger designers and artists the courage to speak up for themselves. Daren has some really incredible work and is always posting new work so make sure to check out his work here: Instagram: @realfunwow Website: https://realfunwow.com/ In today's episode, Daren and I mentioned a few resources outside this podcast.
