Program Description


I struggle every day to do the work I desperately love and want to do. It's not because of lousy supplies, poor technique, lack of connections or anything outside of my own head. It's me. Actually, it's the Poop Monster. If you'd like to investigate some creative ideas, projects and conversations aimed to quell the self-poisoning negativity machine that many art folks have going on in their heads, come on over! If you, on the other hand, do not experience self doubt or devastating self-criticism in your work, please come and tell us how in the hell you do it. 

Gio Benedetti (he/him) loves the scritch scratching sound that a pen nib makes on a piece of bristol board. He made a map because, on his quest to make things, he was constantly getting lost in the desert of excuses and washed away by the river of self doubt. He knows about the Poop Monster and will tell you about it so that you too can avoid its ruinous antics. He will completely fall apart if he hasn’t had a second cup of coffee by 11:30am. He is trying to save the world, again. This time through comics.
