My word of the day: NEW!

Friends! Word for the day is NEW: NEW Book! NEW Newsletter! NEW Podcast! And you are laying eyes on that new stuff right here, right now. Let’s go in order.

FIRST: I have a brand new book called You Will Leave a Trail of Stars, and you can find it here in my shop, or here on Amazon, or here on IndieBound. It’s also likely your local bookshop carries it. Trail of Stars is a compendium of all the best, most important stuff I’ve learned in my lifetime, all in the form of art and short essays.

SECOND, I have a new newsletter, which you are reading now. I am so excited about this new newsletter. It will be released once every two weeks on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of the month. I’ll be sharing much more content, including my own stories, lessons, access to new artwork and workshops, artist tips and prompts, sources of inspiration, exclusive downloads, behind the scenes and loads more. You’re already subscribed, so all you have to do is open it up each time it arrives in your inbox. If you are not interested in this new content, just hit the unsubscribe button below. 

THIRD, The Lisa Congdon Sessions is coming! More about my new podcast below.

Hope you enjoy it,


The Lisa Congdon Sessions

I’m so excited to share with you The Lisa Congdon Sessions, my new podcast for creative folks, all about living and working with more intention, curiosity and joy. What’s most interesting to me is what happens at the intersection between life as a working artist and life as a human with all of our baggage, aspirations, worries and dreams. What does it mean to live a creative life? What is the connection between creativity and joy? And why do we put so much pressure on ourselves to be perfect when it’s the opposite of perfect that is at the core of everything joyful, interesting and exciting in life and in art? From big questions like these to practical questions about business, time management and finding your way through the winding creative path, each week I’ll share stories, tips and insights. I hope you will join me!

Today's Art Prompt: Peel

On the fourth Thursday of each month, I'll be sharing an artist prompt. Sometimes the prompt will be a word, sometimes a phrase, and sometimes directions. The idea is for you to use the prompt to create something: a drawing, a painting, a video, an animation, a poem. Tag your work for the prompt with #lisacongdonartprompt on Instagram and I'll share it in my stories.

Excited to see what you create!
