About the Author

This book is very wordy full of the author's philosophy on art and life and everything else. It's sincere and heartfelt and I'm sure will give anyone who reads it warm fuzzies, but that's not what I was looking for when I bought this book. I wanted pages of tutorials and eye candy, not self help.
I wish I had known that going into it so I could have given it a pass. When I want to hear an artist's thoughts I visit their blog, I don't spend $25 to read them. This isn't to say that this is a bad book, because it's really not. It's just not marketed very well and that might lead to some confusion. I'd recommend it, but only if it's the kind of thing you are into.
Truly outstanding first work -- and can't wait to read the follow-ups which must inevitably come.
I would have liked.
I did not realize that it was about how to make these particular crafts.
I thought it was more about the mental process of creating art.
Good book for those wanting something quick to do, an afternoon project.
Personally, I have my own art style, and use a completely different medium, so I found myself skipping over half the book.
If you want to be guided through the process of making something in a very detailed fashion, you might enjoy this book. But if you're looking for inspiration for your own artwork, I'd look elsewhere.

Too wordy. No real inspiration for me at all. I gave it away. Very disappointed.Published 1 day ago by Amazon Customer
I was very disappointed. I think the artist's site is rather inspiring, however, this book is not at all. As a writer, it is poorly written and needs editing. Read morePublished 16 days ago by azartlady

I would recommend to anyone that is looking
for inspiration, not so much for the techniques.
