In the ninety-seventh episode of The Just Checking In Podcast, we checked in with freelance illustrator and designer Peter O’Toole.
Pete has worked with clients including Adidas, Mundial Magazine, Nike, Scotts Menswear, The Telegraph, Men’s Health USA and Huddersfield Town Football Club.
In this episode we discuss how Pete became an illustrator and designer, class in the industry, self-doubt, comparison culture and the precarious nature of being a freelancer.
We also discuss burnout, Pete’s experience of therapy and the stigma he felt in accessing it, managing your physical and mental health and the early mid-life crisis he had just before the first Covid-19 lockdown.
As always, #itsokaytovent
