Written with heart, humor and honesty Danielle Krysa’s book Creative Block is a refreshing and inspiring collection of interviews that delves into the creative processes of fifty successful artists. From illustrators to ceramicists, every artist offers practical advice and solutions to help others who may be in need of motivation and inspiration. In addition to presenting fun projects like blind contour drawing to embellishing magazine pages, each artist openly talks about their work, how they cope with their inner critic and how they deal with negative criticism. Ultimately when it comes to creative blocks all of the artists encourage the reader to grow through them by pushing artistic boundaries and to experiment with new mediums to discover amazing creations. With the holidays around the corner, Creative Block will make the perfect gift for all of your artist friends or stop into the Oliver Wolcott Library to check out our copy.
