Publisher Comments:

The act of creating art, in all its forms, offers us a path to our souls. But the path can be confusing, and getting lost along the way is inevitable. However, maybe thatand#8217;s the point.

In The Tricksterand#8217;s Hat, bestselling author of the Griffin and Sabine cycle Nick Bantock invites you to lose yourself in order to become a better creator. Inspired by Nick's popular and mischievous workshops, the book's forty-nine perceptive exercises will encourage you to forget your destination while you meander through the wondrous world that awaits you in the periphery of your mind's eye.

If youand#8217;re willing to be lead hither and thither down unlikely paths by a fellow of dubious reputation, if youand#8217;re prepared to keep a sense of humor and not be phased when he plucks the unexpected out of a mischief-stuffed hat, if youand#8217;re ready to zigzag, detour, and wander in search of a better understanding of your artistic core, then, let the Trickster be your guide.

Synopsis:

To celebrate the tenth anniversary of a book that has helped millions discover and cultivate their creative selves, this edition is updated and expanded and reframes "The Artist's Way" for a new century.

Synopsis:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [223]-229) and index.

TheLavruss, January 1, 2011 (view all comments by TheLavruss)
I found this book to be life changing. I have done some real soul-searching in response to the assignments, and found my higher power. It has changed my belief system, and outlook on life. I started it because I felt blocked, and even after I no longer felt that way, it continued to enlighten me. I recommend it to every artist out there.
