Creative Block: Get Unstuck, Discover New Ideas. Advice and Projects from 50 Successful Artists (英语) 平装 – 2013年12月17日
"Creative Block is a get-out-of-hell free card. Read this book and the dark nights with your creative soul may go more gently." - Jerry Saltz, senior art critic, New York magazine "What makes the project particularly noteworthy is that while it features reflections from visual artists, most of their insights apply just as usefully to other creative endeavors, from writing and to entrepreneurship to, even, science." - Brain Pickings "Danielle Krysta's Creative Block is truth-telling balm for all of us who wonder if we're the only ones who get stuck, second-guess ourselves, and dance with gremlins. I loved every page-the art, the interviewes, and the unBlock challenges." - Brene Brown, author Daring Greatly "Creative Block is a vital reminder that, as we move forward on our creative paths, the obstacles we encounter along the way don't have to be overwhelming. We can tap into our community and draw inspiration from one another-plowing forward and breaking new ground. " - Faythe Levine, author, director, and artist "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." - Starred Review, Library Journal

Two critiques (that would have added two more stars): First, by the author's admission, the interviews are formulaic. It's swell to hear many of the subjects' take on the questions, but, at half-way through the book, it'd be nice to have some variety of Q & A. Second: Most everybody in the book looks a lot like me. In this day and age, diversity kind of goes without saying... working to find willing, able, and qualified participants whose backgrounds go beyond the "White" experience would have been beneficial.
I like the book and I'm glad to own it.
One of my favorite ideas for getting unstuck was proposed by Jessica Bell: deliberately destroy something you love. Speaking from my experience of holding what we call Bad Art Night every two weeks where we challenge ourselves to do just that - destroy something you love, I can tell you this works fast to get you unstuck. All the ideas in the book are of this caliber - bold and daring. And the photos of each artists work are sumptuous. I particularly liked that many of those interviewed by Danielle were collage artists.
