SUBJECT: Barbecue And Art Motivation
Hi Joel and co-host!
I’ve been listening to Episode 403 recently and wanted to recommend that you try to also smoke vegetables. Ages ago my former flatmate’s dad brought over a home made spread made from smoked eggplant and garlic. Let me tell you, this stuff was mind blowing. He told me that they simply threw a ton of eggplants on the grill after barbecuing and put a lid over it. Once they were done, they scooped them out, mixed it with crushed garlic and probably a bit of mayonnaise. (I’m not sure anymore, as it’s been a decade).
Also, you mentioned that you find it hard to find motivation to draw for yourself when you’re already drawing on the job. Well, I know that feeling, albeit differently; I’m a software Dev and I used to tinker with my PCs twenty-four-seven, but now that it has been my full time job for a while, I also find it increasingly challenging to find motivation to do similar things that I do at my day job. That’s one of the catches of turning your hobby into your job. I’m afraid I don’t know a solution for this either, but then again, is it so bad to use your time differently? I am honestly not sure. While I’d like to tinker more with the huge amounts of hardware on my desk, I now can bake a pretty amazing pizza and work out more.
Keep up this podcast, I always love to listen in.
