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.
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.Read more ›
