I just received my copy of this book after hearing an interview with the author on NPR. I am already feeling my body relax from the normal artist/day job grind after reading only thirty pages. The inner conflict of being an artist and having to make money on the side as something other can put a lot of strain on one in many ways. This book gets that and understands that and does not shy away from that. I am SO happy that this book exists and recommend it to any and every artist and layman who wants to find more meaning and understanding.

I'm not an artist, but the book is an inspiration and reminder to be creative and passionate about everything you do. We all need that inspirational injection sometimes and this book gives you that plus a helpful guide to translating that inspiration into action. Plus, I love the author's fantastic illustrations. The books would be more than worth it just have the illustrations!

And I'm not even an artist..
But this book is the bible for getting inspired, either by hitting you over the head with a 'how to' approach or subtly and subconsciously injecting its fun loving images to brighten your mood.
This is a great book to spawn your creativity. For me,
Idea 1: I'll share the happiness with my family, even the more belligerent members.
Idea 2: I think I'll cut out and frame all the drawings to sell for a small fortune.
Idea 3: After this one sells out, I hope the author writes even more books.

I feel like I'm not quite ready to review The Artist in the Office - like it needs about a dozen more reads, as I want it's awesomeness to really rub off and sink in and lead me to being a better coach. And yet, I don't wanna drag my feet in introducing it to all of you. It would be nothing but downright mean of me.

When I bought The Artist in the Office, I knew it was not a transportation book. By that I mean it wasn't a book I wanted to read passively on the subway, getting interrupted and having to pay attention to where I am and having a Start and Stop point that's dependent on how far I'm traveling. Instead, I wanted to delve into it on my terms, when I had the time and the space and the ability to get lost.

And get lost I did.

To put it simply, I wish I wrote this book. It's the type of book that I aspire to write and produce one day. It's encouraging, it's inspiring, it's fun, it's beautiful, it's quirky, it's workbook-ish, and it literally is written for every single person who's pursuing their creative passion. Summer gets your head on straight by allowing you to own your artsy-ness and make sure it's not left behind just because you're in a non-artsy environment. While she has a few disclaimers that these exercises shouldn't be done at the expense of your professionalism (or job!), she offers so many amazeballs ideas on how to make your workday creative no matter what you're doing, whether it's Commuting Bingo, utilizing the copier for all it's worth, or breaking into spontaneous dances with co-workers, she really opened my eyes to how creative a corporate environment could be! That I wish I had this book this time last year, when I was still Executive Assisting it up, goes without saying.

I love this book! I am a seasoned professional (nearing 60 years old) who has been stuck in jobs for the paycheck for a number of years. The perspective of the author to see things differently is liberating and inspiring! I love the graphics and the message that anyone (artist or not) could benefit from! It's a fun little interactive book.

I've thoroughly enjoyed reading The Artist in the Office. The individual articles within it are concise and manageable, with numerous references to the author's own experience. Further, this book has given me a new perspective on my position as both artist and office-type person.

I think this was my fifth purchase of this book because I keep giving copies away to "artist in the office" friends in need. I constantly refer to it when I need a little inspiration or a reminder that my day job shouldn't impede my creativity; in fact, there are some great tips here on carrying creativity into a day job that may not be as creative as we'd like. I'm going to try to hang on to this copy for a while (it's not avail for Kindle and I'm kind of glad for that, otherwise I wouldn't have been able to share and share...).

This book as the title already own makes reference extramente practice is to offer ideas and insipiração one who develops his art in the workplace. Another interesting detail is the making of the book, almost entirely handmade, not for the orgniazação of topics.
