Kleon examines and shares inspiring advice on how to make (good) art. 140 pages long, it’s a quick and rewarding read.

In the spirit of this book I wish you a productive and inspired 2013.

As Jane Fonda once said, “you always regret what you didn’t do”. So, go ahead and do it, don’t let anything or anyone discourage you.¬† Be inspired – discover and create.

HAPPY NEW YEAR !

Art & Fear

“…the seed for your next work lies embedded in the imperfections of your current piece.”

That’s a quote from this book:

Geoff Flack, one of the instructors at Gage, recommended it. If you (like pretty much any other artist) ever wondered about yourself as an artist and/or your work – be it writing, music or painting, you name it – you have to read this book. I did, it’s fantastic. In fact I just started reading it for a second time. It’s a quick read (122 pages) and every word is worth reading and thinking about.
