EPISODE 9: The value of not working with Kell Sunshine

Kell Sunshine is a lettering artist based in New Zealand and known for her gorgeous colour palettes and mural work. There's barely a town left in New Zealand without one of her gorgeous works gracing the walls.

Kell is a Typism conference alumnus, and she spoke at the conference many, many years ago when social distancing didn't impact conferences and hugging was still a thing.

One of the gifts that Kelly gave me when she spoke at the conference was a sticker that says stop being so busy. I have that stuck on my laptop and I still look at it every day. 

We asked Kell on to the Typism podcast to talk about a topic that lettering artists often struggle with, especially in this age of the internet and that's to stop wearing busyness as a badge of honour.

 "If you're constantly working, you never get time to replenish, to have ideas, to  create that space for goodness to come from."—Kell Sunshine
