It’s All a Blank Canvas

@ VOL 18 ON FEB 11, 2016

"How do I keep the creative fires burning as a grown-ass man, with taxes due and a bum knee."

In "It’s All a Blank Canvas" from PechaKucha Night Knoxville Vol. 18Chris McAdoo shares his creative journey to today, both personally and professionally…and what keeps the creative fires burning as age, responsibilities, and (at least to an extent) maturity, sneak up on a "grown-ass man."

@ VOL 30 ON FEB 21, 2019
