You Are Not Invisible

As a creative, there are plenty of times where you feel
insignificant while it seems like no one is paying attention to the work you pour your soul into. This is all part of the struggle of pursuing work that’s important to you.

During these moments of invisibility, it’s important to
remind yourself that:

  1. You are not pizza
  2. Comparison is a thief
  3. You are human

At the end of the day, you are not alone and you are not invisible.


Main Stage: SATURDAY
5:25 to 6:00 pm


Perspective-Collective is the studio of Scotty Russell, a freelance lettering artist, and illustrator based out of Cedar Falls, Iowa. Some minor obsessions he has consists of drawing on everything he can find and anything to do with pizza.

Outside of being an artist, he strives to encourage his creative peers. He does this through co-hosting monthly Drink & Draws, teaching workshops, public speaking, and his weekly Perspective Podcast.

He’s a big advocate for pursuing the type of side projects you want to get paid to create. He also believes your hobby has more potential than you think. In his spare time, you can catch him burning the pizza off in the gym and causing mischief with his partners in crime: his wife and cats.
