Book Review: Creative Block: Get Unstuck, Discover New Ideas

Creative Block: Get Unstuck, Discover New Ideas. Advice & Projects from 50 Successful Artists

by Danielle Krysa
San Francisco: Chronicle Books, 2014

Danielle Krysa is an artist and author of the Jealous Curator blog which features art that she wishes she had thought of making. She "writes a daily post about an artist whose work 'makes me jealous,' but in a good way. . .I have learned that there is a place for everyone to make what they want to make. What matters is that you enjoy the process of making."

Yet artists sometimes get blocked and can't come up with something new to do. In "Creative Block," Krysa interviews fifty artists who work in a variety of mediums on their life, their work and their inspiration. Each one also offers a way of becoming "unstuck." Their ideas are wonderful and inventive and offer that creative spark all artists need once in a while.

"Creative Block" will introduce you to a group of modern artists and their respective processes as well as inspire you to be creative. It's a great book for artists or those who want to become artists to spend some time with.
