From academic probation to the Dean’s List, Jon Foster has worked hard to get to where he is now.

Jon is an Illustrator. He has received two silver and three gold awards from Spectrum: The Best of Contemporary Fantastic Art.

In this conversation, Jon and I talk about everything from struggling with the Impostor Syndrome to confronting Fear to the importance of enjoying the Process to the value of constant Learning and Growth.

Jon shares his perspective on the intersection between Creativity, Passion and Practice and how these factors can either help or hinder you as an Artist. He also talks about what Procrastination might really mean.
