I am so thrilled to be speaking to Adam J. Kurtz (aka Adam JK) on the podcast about his new book, You Are Here (For Now), a collection of essays and art about life, and change, and you, and me, and all of us trying to just be more okay. Let me say I devoured this book and had room for seconds it was so good.
Tune in as Adam and I discuss the difference between living and truly being alive with all the paradoxes along the way. If the pandemic has taught us anything it’s that we both have a lot of time and we don’t. We know enough and also don’t have a clue. Nothing is permanent and if you’re evolving you’re doing something right, but being busy is not a personality. Like I said, paradoxes abound. Let’s get more comfortable with it together in this amazing interview.
Adam J. Kurtz (aka Adam JK) is a designer, artist, and speaker whose illustrative work is rooted in honesty, humor, and a little darkness. His books have been translated into over a dozen languages and his offbeat creative work has been featured in NYLON, Adweek, Vice, The New Yorker, and more.
Kurtz speaks frankly about channeling human emotion into our art and generally just trying to be more okay with whatever we’ve got. His new book, You Are Here (For Now), will be released in October 2021.
