Steal Like an Artist by Austin Kleon. My sister gave me the nudge by giving me a copy for Christmas. If I had known it would only take me a couple of hours to read it, I would have done it sooner. Oh - My - Gosh! What a practical, pithy read it is. Love it!! If you've been reading my blog - you know I like pithy reads! I figure if it takes people more than 5 minutes or so to get through one of my posts than obviously, I'm being too long winded.
Anyways, if you haven't read the book and have a creative spirit, I highly recommend it. Kleon gives 10 pieces of advice on how to stay creative in our black and white world. The advice is practical - easy to understand and in my opinion, dead on. Most I know - Most I follow - Most I need to be reminded of. What beginner artist doesn't??
Last year, it seemed I based my blog posts mostly on my journey on my masterclass. This year, I thought I would use Kleon's book as a framework to hold the year together. It will be fun to see how I can put his advice to use!!
So if you have 10 bucks and 2 hours go buy the book. If you don't have 10 bucks, get it out of the local library. And if you don't have 2 hours, you really do need to start making 2 hours to read every now and again.
So What have you been up to creatively?
