Sharing Your Personal Story is a Form of Activism
Timothy Goodman is constantly trying to find meaning in his work. But what defines meaning? He believes the greatest joy as a designer and an artist is the ability to connect to another human emotionally through his work and words. Whether he's drawing all over a basketball court for students in Brooklyn, launching a social experiment, creating the cover of Time magazine, creating a shoe with Nike, or writing a graphic memoir about being heartbroken in Paris, Timothy wants to start dialogues about difficult topics such as love, manhood, and mental health. Join Timothy as he talks about where he’s been, where he’s at, and how he’s trying to redefine what it means to work in this industry.
