Aaron Boyd - Empathy

Aaron Boyd has illustrated over 40 children’s books working mostly in old school watercolor. Aaron talks about the challenge of maintaining internal honesty and says that so often our fear pushes us away from our internal voice and toward security and that his greatest successes in life have been when he’s faced the fear and listened to that voice. You will want to add this quote of his to your arsenal: “Fear no longer gets a vote.”
