A few months ago, I was chatting with a good friend of mine. Then he surprised me by stating something that was in retrospect really obvious. He said that I was an introvert. We were talking about attending a few parties and I wasn't very interested in going. Then he said something to the effect of, "Of course, typical introverted Carlo." I'm guessing that most of the podcast guests would be categorized as introverts. Or at the very least, introverts with extrovert tendencies. I haven't had many conversations about this.
So it was a good surprise when Meream Pacayra brought it up in our interview. A self proclaimed introvert, she has managed to share her work with thousands of people. Whether it be through selling in bazaars, social media (her IG account has over 21k followers), stores stocking her merch, or plain talking to people, she has managed to share her work with a countless number of people.
We talked about what it is like being an introvert in today's digital world, the idea of using the 80/20 principle in art as well as in life, how to get better at drawing, and a lot more.
Enjoy the podcast!
