Publicity and a bit about Raw Spoon / Ross Boone
(artist name: Raw Spoon).
I battled doubt even as I built up a thriving career on creative thinking, illustration and writing.
Now I use art (images and words) to share my creative answers with others who struggle too.
I choose to live a monk-like lifestyle (see video below) so I can focus on finding and sharing the solutions. I purposely don't own a house or many material things, trim out activities that take away from my mission, and I see my singleness as an opportunity to pursue my mission better.
I am a missionary of sorts but I'm a big believer in creating enough value that it is worth paying for. Doctors for the body get paid for healing, and some of us heal the soul. So I hope you find something of value to purchase on this site, or one of the events. But if you feel led to financially support me, here are some options.
