41: Drawing on the Positive After Surviving Cancer with Andrea Ross

Mike gets down to some graphite pieces with the new Pentel Canada Orenz Nero. Mike is then joined by Andrea Ross who talks about her journey from software developer and podcaster before a diagnosis of cancer changed her life. She talks about creating the idea of drawing something positive everyday which she calls “gruntling”. Approaching 1000 drawings by the end of 2020, she talks about perseverance, positivity, pens, and paper. Her journey will inspire you to consider how to find and build a positive view of the world through a little art every day.
