I’m currently loving this artist’s self-help guide, which has just been released by Perigee, the same folks who published Wreck this Journal, Keri Smith’s best-selling book/sketchbook hybrid.
Lee’s guide is similar in that it’s a playful, contagiously optimistic, creative kick-starter of a book, guaranteed to get those artistic juices flowing. As some of you may recall, overcoming artist’s block was the central theme of my graduate show earlier this year, so I applaud anyone who offers empowering exercises and methods to break down your monstrous block. As an illustrator, Lee understands firsthand the anguish of getting stuck in a miserable artistic rut.
Whether it’s perfectionism, procrastination, or plain old fear that’s holding you back, get ready to get inspired.
