Beat the Dreaded “Creative Block” with This Imaginative Art Book

How to Get Over a Creative Block Book The Jealous Curator Danielle Krysa

When stuck in a rut, many artists look to their libraries for inspiration. Whether studying masterpieces in art history texts or gazing at glossy photographs in coffee table books, leafing through art publications is a great way to generate ideas. With this in mind, blogger Danielle Krysa has crafted Creative Blocka “chunky blockbuster of a book” bound to help you out of any creative slump.

Creative Block features in-depth interviews with 50 international artists working in an eclectic array of mediums. In each case, Krysa asks them what they do when they feel stuck. With answers ranging from road trips to bathroom organization, every reader is sure to discover a new way to “conquer self-doubt, stay motivated, and get new ideas to flow.”

To illustrate the success of each tried-and-true tip, Creative Block also features photographs of each artists' resulting work. Totaling 300 images, this curated gallery of images is enough to inspire any artist—so you can only imagine its success when paired with exclusive words of wisdom!
