Interview: Michael Nobbs on Building a Sustainably Creative Life

by Amy Sumner | Monday, 03rd April 2017 | 0 Comments

Michael Nobbs is the author of Drawing Your Life and publishes an illustrated journal called The Beany. Michael is an artist, podcaster and tea-drinker. At the end of the 1990s he was diagnosed with ME/CFS, a chronic illness that severely limits how much he can do each day. Over the years he’s learnt a lot about living the best life he can by accepting what he can’t change and working with what he can.
