Shea Hembrey is absolutely amazing. The stories he tells at the beginning of his TED Talk remind me so much of my childhood that I was immediately sucked into this presentation. Hembrey is a charming speaker. His accent is precious, his delivery is quirky, and his art is insane. He becomes 100 different artists to create art through a variety of mediums. For example, he “is” Kay Overstreet at 6:23 and creates Frost, and this receives applause and laughter from the audience because it is such a crazy talented concept. You have got to watch this.
I love being challenged, and I think artists like Hembrey are what take creativity and imagination to the next level.
