1. There are three primary fears creatives, like artist, illustrator, and author Christoph Niemann, face: the fear of not being good enough, the fear that our work will be irrelevant, and the fear of running out of ideas. Niemann explains how these fears are very real, but that there are solutions we can apply to each.

  3. About this presentation

    As creatives, we're often put to the test of makin tough decisions and sacrifices for our work. However, according to Yuko, our biggest decision needs to happen at the beginning of our career asking ourselves: "What kind of artist do [we] want to be?" and having a clear picture of what that looks like.

    In this talk, Yuko distills insights from her own personal story of being fired just days before her 99U appearance, gives advice on learning to say no, her thoughts on personal work, and tying it all back to the reality that while we might not win every job or shine on every project, sometimes it's for the best.
