As an illustrator, one of my goals is to try and be creative every day. This journal makes it easy for me to do some art every day. The prompts are interesting and insightful. My favorite was one of the first exercises where you simplify your art kit. Painful, but I love the end result. Recommended By Rose H., Powells.com
Synopses & Reviews
This guided journal for artists will make you question your previously held beliefs and push your art to thrive in unexpected ways.
With her lovely, subtle illustrations, Cleo presents pairs of opposing advice for artists and creatives on facing pages, along with prompts and quotes, encouraging readers to embrace the push-pull of the creative process and find their own path forward. Each illustrated spread with its pair of opposing advice is followed by a blank spread with a related exercise prompt for developing an artistic practice. This journal is perfect for those who need a gentle nudge out of a rut, or a reminder that taking the less traveled path can lead you to the best results. Perfect for fans of Keri Smith, Austin Kleon, and Elle Luna.
