3 Books That Will Help You Be Brave And Creative

Good morning, day, or evening, according to which place on the planet you are right now! Today I wanna share some more wisdom on how you can give yourself some love, advice and inspiration and, as we know, books have always been there for that reason. Three of them that really stood out for me and I appreciate the insights they provide are the following:

art-inc

1.Art Inc. The Essential Guide for building Your Career As An Artist by Lisa Congdon. It ‘s the most happy, fun and stractured book that describes which steps you should take to start your career as an artist. How you can organize your time and work and the aspects you need to think in order to promote your work and go further. In addition to this you ‘ll find a plethora of interviews of artists who made it starting from scratch, which is a major inspiration. Hesitate no more my friends, go ahed and purchase it!

2. Social Media Design For Dummies by Janine Warner. This one is more techy, but surely helpful on teaching you the basics and beyond on how to use social media effectively and organize your on-line space and presence in a way that doesn’t give you a headache every time you think about it. Since every entrepreneur and artist need to promote their work, this one is a good teacher-book on that area.

The-Artists-Way-Book (1)

3. The Artist’s Way by Julia Cameron. This book is a classic and must-read not only for creatives but for anyone really. It helps you overcome your creative and life blocks while giving you solid, practical advice. I read it once and I wanna go back and re-do the exercises. It is a truly life-changing book and a companion for life. Every time you read it it’s a new experience, I promise.

This is it for today, short and rich.

Goodbye and big kiss until next time!

Things I Inhale:: 3 Magazines that will inspire your visual creativity

Hello friends! I can guess you’re seeking for some great visual content to browse. Well, you ‘re at the right place since I have 3 rockin’ magazine recommendations for you that will make you wanna draw something immediately! I’m gonna hesitate no more!

1. Frrresh

1435740786_frrresh-magazine-28-2015-1

One of my favorite magazines to lose my mind is Frrresh magazine. A visual arts digital edition of monthly illustrated collections. It ‘s free and every issue features a plethora of artists of different styles and backgrounds. Their moto is: ”Bring artists to the people” and trully that’s what they do! They come from Croatia and they created this magazine out of pure love for art and because they wanted to have a simple and fresh design of an art magazine that’s not bombarded with commercials. Good job guys!

2. Ink and Arrows

This one is paid, but you can read many issues on-line on Issuu (a digital platform where you can go through magazines for free -pretty awesome!). This one features artists that are somehow established already, since they wanna hane a more professional design and look. It also includes interviews of the artists in a polished and minimal design layout. It’s a must-read if you ask me!

3. Illustration Age

And last but not least is this diamond over here. It is a site actually, not a magazine, but it’s kinda digital magazine so it’s fair to add it on this short list. Take yourselves over there right this moment! You can find an infinite number of professional illustrators to meet and plenty of advice if you ‘re an illustrator or an artist yourself.

This is it for tonight! Now I’ll go drink my caramel tea and enjoy the windy weather!
