In the search for a romantic partner, we often look for someone with whom we have lots in common. Makes sense, right? But what if you and your significant other have one major thing in common? You are both creatives.

On today’s pod, my friends Francis Vallejo (illustrator) and L. Shima (model coordinator) jump on the mics to help illuminate the topic of creative coupling. Francis and Shima have been together for eight years and speak openly about how they met, the ups and down of being partnered with another creative person, and the unique compatibility they have found working in the arts.
