5.0 out of 5 stars Good and Fast read
By Tina on September 20, 2022
If you're lacking on inspiration and you're feeling like you're not original enough for the big Art world..
This will give you a REALITY CHECK on how really the successful world works..
I'm a slow reader and I was able to read the whole book in a couple hours, but I will probably go back to it on some parts i want to write down and apply to my Day to Day Life!
Awesome work Austin Kleon, I will definitely plan on reading other works of yours sir !

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect book if you're questioning your place in the creative world
Reviewed in the United Kingdom 🇬🇧 on January 5, 2020
This book was recommended to me by a few fellow creatives in an amazing community I'm part of on social media.

I needed this book, but didn't know about it until it was recommended.
I'd reached out to the group about the fact that as an illustrator I felt a bit lost in the creative world, like I hadn't found my place, because I didn't have a 'style' by which people could recognise my work, and no particular style that I favoured illustrating over others, I just felt like I wasn't a real illustrator if I didn't produce consistent work that was clearly 'me', like everyone else seems to do. I would (and still do really) trawl through the art by others I admired, and be able to say oh that's by so and so, they're so good!
No one could do that with me, as my illustrations are so random, there's no cohesion. Should I stop putting my art out there until I know who I am as an artist?

So this book was one of two recommended to me to read (find your artistic voice by Lisa Congdon is the other).

And I'm so glad I did buy this. It all made sense, it all seemed so relatable, in particular section 2 - Don't wait until you know who you are to get started.

If you're an artist just starting out, or one who already creates a lot of art (any kind of creation really) and are unsure you belong in the creative world yet because you're not good enough, or you're not original enough, or you don't know your style yet - get this book.
