My guest today is a world traveler, lifelong surfer, and an absolute wizard with a paint brush. His name is Pete Tillack. In his early twenties, Pete was just about to launch his own electrician business, when a brief surf trip turned into a lifelong journey of discovery, relationships, and art. I absolutely love Pete’s artwork and would describe his paintings as, “walking into a dream”. They are beautiful pieces, full of vivid symbology, as is the man who paints them. I found Pete to be fun, deep, and engaging, I really enjoyed our conversation. I hope you enjoy it as well.
In our conversation, we discussed… overthinking, possessing size strength and depth, masculinity, creative people, our process, abandoning the structure, identity, doing things because we’re supposed to, because we’re family, boredom, creating from boredom, consuming versus producing, benefiting the group, painting, surfing, planting trees, music, connecting with songs, music as magic, and knowing when to catch the wave.
