52 – Don’t compromise your morals and don’t be a jerk with Spencer Goldade


"Come back to yourself and say ‘What is it I really value and how is that going to drive my life?’ That will bleed into your art and design practices and how you handle business." Spencer Goldade

Hello and welcome to the 52nd episode of The Spark & The Art Podcast. That means it’s been a year since I’ve started. (Plus a couple of weeks because I didn’t publish on January 1st and last week was the first time I didn’t have a guest available). If you’ve been here since the beginning, thanks. I hope you enjoyed the episodes. Hope you got some inspiration and insight and I hope there was at least one episode you thought worthy of sharing with a friend. Thanks to everyone who left a review on iTunes; it really helps the show get found. Also, thanks to those who have left animal impressions on the toll-free number. (You’ll hear another one at the end of this episode.) And to those who have emailed me: I loved talking with you and I can’t wait for more conversations. 

In the coming year, I have more musicians, authors, some comic book artists and a video game interface designer in the works. So let’s hope they all pan out and we can learn about all kinds of crazy creative work. If you have someone you'd be interested in hearing me talk to, drop their name to me on twitter @sh_tucker or leave a little voicemail on my toll-free number 1-877-966-4886.

This week’s episode is an interview with Spencer Goldade. If the name sounds familiar, you may have listened to his The Spark & The Art interview in episode two. He was not only my first interview for the podcast, but my first interview ever, so I thought it made sense for him to be my first repeat guest. 

Spencer and I talk about the impact travel can have on your art. The importance of trying new forms of creativity. How you can’t be an expert at everything. And lastly and most importantly, why you shouldn’t compromise on your morals and why you shouldn’t be a jerk.

Did anything in today’s episode stand out for you? I’d love to hear what resonated with you. Get me on twitter @sh_tucker email Tucker@thesparkandtheart.com or at the toll-free number 1-877-966-4886. If you leave a question at that number, I’ll play it on a future episode of the podcast and do my best to give you some clear guidance. 

And, as always, if anything in today’s podcast reminded you of someone you know, you can share this episode with them by sending them the URL TheSparkAndTheArt.com/52. I can only hope they get a little inspiration to get a project started, unstuck or done.
