  • How, when it comes to self-improvement, actions speak louder than words

  • Why its okay to quit a job and then go back to it 

 

In the final instalment of the series, Tiffany and I discuss storyboarding, constructive work environments and personal wellbeing. Episode #23 sees us discussing why women of colour find it hard to say 'no', and how saying 'no' can push your career forward. Learn how to collaborate with your colleagues while retaining some independence. Tiffany also gives lessons on self-reflection, and managing your inner-critic.

 

Episode #24 reveals the particulars of Tiffany's career path. Find out how to get started as a cartoonist and get hired at a major studio. Discover the painstaking process behind storyboarding, the joy of collaborative design and the significance of colour blocking. You'll also find out why, for creatives, playing is just as important as learning.
