Samara chats with the internationally beloved cartoonist and The Simpsons artist about how to be creative when the world is a mess and we’re not in the mood to make things that are optimistic or silly or beautiful. They discuss where ideas come from, how to overcome a work culture that doesn’t take you seriously, the surprise impact Dungeons & Dragons had on her career, and how to become your own best cheerleader after a lifetime of playing small.
