64: Reflections, Creating with Mushroom Ink, and Social Media

Mike takes an episode to reflect on being a creative over the last couple of months. He explores some of the challenges we experience and considers how to build a recipe for recovery for your creative practice. He then answers questions about creating mushroom ink and then painting with it and ends with what a short shutdown of Facebook and Instagram means for creatives.
