Five(ish) Questions: John Walsh
John Walsh is a storyteller, an illustrator, and a father. He was selected as one of ten Artists in Residence by the City of Boston for 2016/2017. In this program, artists are supported as agents of reflection, collaboration, and activism, whether through process-oriented practice, direct community engagement, and/or as leaders of system-wide change projects at Boston Centers for Youth and Family and other City agencies.
I linked up with John at his place and we hit it off right away. John is the definition of the term "salt of the earth" as you'll hear in our conversation. We talked about telling stories of interest, the joy and change that comes with being a parent, the drive to continue pursuing art, and how failure and success show up in art and life. Oh, I almost forgot, he also answered Five Questions. Meet John.
