Description

Creative block presents the most crippling—and unfortunately universal—challenge for artists. No longer! This blockbuster of a book is chock-full of solutions for overcoming all manner of artistic impediment. The blogger behind The Jealous Curator interviews 50 successful international artists working in different mediums and mines their insights on how to conquer self-doubt, stay motivated, and get new ideas to flow. Each artist offers a tried-and-true exercise—from road trips to 30-day challenges to cataloging the medicine cabinet— that will kick-start the creative process. Abundantly visual with more than 300 images showcasing these artists' resulting work, Creative Block is a vital ally to students, artists, and creative professionals.

        Starred review from July 1, 2014

        Everyone draws a blank occasionally. Fortunately, this title is there to help inspire visual artists and get their creative ideas flowing again. Artist and blogger Krysa (The Jealous Curator) interviewed 50 working artists from around the world. They share insights about their process, the notion of creativity, and what they do to get out of a rut. There are no step-by-step instructional projects included, however; instead each artist offers a short assignment suggestion. These exercises vary widely--everything from road trips to 30-day challenges--and sometimes depart far from conventional art making in their tactics. VERDICT This title is a great resource for any type of visually creative person working in any medium at any level to call upon when the inevitable artist's block strikes.
