Things Are What You Make Of Them

Life Advice for Creatives



Insights and inspiration for anyone who makes art (or anything else), from the popular author of 1 Page at a Time and Pick Me Up.

From the creative mind and heart of Adam J. Kurtz comes this quirky, upbeat rallying cry for creators of all stripes. Expanding on a series of popular guides he's created for Design*Sponge, this handwritten and heartfelt little book shares wisdom and empathy from one working artist to others. The advice is organized by topic, including:

- (How to) Get Over Comparing Yourself to Other Creatives
- Seeking & Accepting Help from Others
- How to Get Over Common Creative Fears (Maybe)
- How to Be Happy (or Just Happier)

As wry and cheeky as it is empathic and empowering, this deceptively simple, vibrantly full-color book will be a touchstone for writers, illustrators, designers, and anyone else who wants to be more creative--even when it would be easier to give up act normal.
