Book Summary:

Unlock your creativity. An inspiring guide to creativity in the digital age, Steal Like an Artist presents ten transformative principles that will help readers discover their artistic side and build a more creative life. Nothing is original, so embrace influence, school yourself through the work of others, remix and reimagine to discover your own path. Follow interests wherever they take you—what feels like a hobby may turn into you life’s work. Forget the old cliché about writing what you know: Instead, write the book you want to read, make the movie you want to watch. And finally, stay Smart, stay out of debt, and risk being boring in the everyday world so that you have the space to be wild and daring in your imagination and your work. “Brilliant and real and true.”—Rosanne Cash

Book Summary:

Keep Working. Keep Playing. Keep Creating. In his previous books Steal Like an Artist and Show Your Work!, both New York Times bestsellers, Austin Kleon gave readers the keys to unlock their creativity and showed them how to become known. Now he offers his most inspiring work yet, with ten simple rules for how to stay creative, focused, and true to yourself—for life. The creative life is not a linear journey to a finish line, it’s a loop—so find a daily routine, because today is the only day that matters. Disconnect from the world to connect with yourself—sometimes you just have to switch into airplane mode. Keep Going celebrates getting outdoors and taking a walk (as director Ingmar Bergman told his daughter, ”The demons hate fresh air”). Pay attention, and especially pay attention to what you pay attention to. Worry less about getting things done, and more about the worth of what you’re doing. Instead of focusing on making your mark, work to leave things better than you found them. Keep Going and its timeless, practical, and ethical principles are for anyone trying to sustain a meaningful and productive life.

Book Summary:

In his New York Times bestseller Steal Like an Artist, Austin Kleon showed readers how to unlock their creativity by “stealing” from the community of other movers and shakers. Now, in an even more forward-thinking and necessary book, he shows how to take that critical next step on a creative journey—getting known. Show Your Work! is about why generosity trumps genius. It’s about getting findable, about using the network instead of wasting time “networking.” It’s not self-promotion, it’s self-discovery—let others into your process, then let them steal from you. Filled with illustrations, quotes, stories, and examples, Show Your Work! offers ten transformative rules for being open, generous, brave, productive. In chapters such as You Don’t Have to Be a Genius; Share Something Small Every Day; and Stick Around, Kleon creates a user’s manual for embracing the communal nature of creativity— what he calls the “ecology of talent.” From broader life lessons about work (you can’t find your voice if you don’t use it) to the etiquette of sharing—and the dangers of oversharing—to the practicalities of Internet life (build a good domain name; give credit when credit is due), it’s an inspiring manifesto for succeeding as any kind of artist or entrepreneur in the digital age.

Book Summary:

In this 2012 book, author Austin Kleon approaches an often-considered taboo subject of the world of creative works: copying another's work. While most consider the idea of copying another's style or design to be wrong, Austin says it doesn't have to be. Instead, Kleon suggests that the best creative ideas come from building off of ideas that others have already had. Kleon suggests that creativity is everywhere and is for everyone, so even if you don't feel like you are as great of an author, painter, photographer, or whatever your chosen medium may be, you should still learn from the best and try your best to imitate their work. This, he says, is how everyone finds their own individual style. While discussing what he calls "the inevitability of influence," Kleon tells his readers to "live outside the vacuum," and just to have fun with their art. He says there is no such thing as an original idea in today's creative world. Instead, every artist is merely taking ideas from one another and adding their own stylistic elements. "You don't need to be a genius," he says. "You just need to be yourself." Throughout the book, which is organized into eleven major subheadings, Kleon tells us to create what we would enjoy in the hope that someone else will enjoy it, too. Instead of creating something popular or trendy to cater to the masses, we should instead simply create to please ourselves. After all, new trends are forged when people are willing to step outside of the box. The book, itself, is an easy and fun read and suitable for young adults as well as more seasoned artists.

Fantagraphics is proud to publish this edition of TeotFW in conjunction with the 2017 television drama on UK’s Channel 4 (with distribution via Netflix in the U.S.). Originally released to critical and public acclaim in 2013, Charles Forsman’s graphic novel debut follows James and Alyssa, two teenagers living a seemingly typical teen experience as they face the fear of coming adulthood. Forsman tells their story through each character’s perspective, jumping between points of view with each chapter. But quickly, this somewhat familiar teenage experience takes a more nihilistic turn as James’s character exhibits a rapidly forming sociopathy that threatens both of their futures. He harbors violent fantasies and begins to act on them, while Alyssa remains as willfully ignorant for as long as she can, blinded by young love.

Book Summary:

Do you feel like other people always get the best of you? Do you wish you were more assertive in dealing with others? Have you ever felt bullied or dismissed by others? Want to get some payback? Then you're ready to take psychological warfare seriously. You'll never have a mere conversation again after putting our tricks into practice. This book teaches you personal interaction on a psychological level. It runs from trivial tricks like getting people to like and respect you more, to tactical life skills like making a convincing argument or persuading somebody to do you a large favor. In case you're up for some heavier artillery, it also teaches you how to play manipulative tricks on people by exploiting arcane quirks in the human mind, to psychological combat maneuvers practiced by law enforcement and the military. Learn from psychology experts and military black-ops experiments alike, as we explore the maze of the human mind and discover some access panels that weren't meant to be discovered. If you don't want to use it offensively, you can also use it as a defense against the con artists and sociopaths who try to pull one over on you - perhaps you'll even see your relationship in a new way. It's time you asserted yourself! Get in touch with your inner Jedi and learn a few mind tricks of your own. If you even use it to argue your way out of one traffic ticket, this book has paid for itself right there.
