I got in the mail today the new Austin Kleon’s book ”Show Your Work” and I gained courage and inspiration to share some of what I’m creating, even if it’s not perfect or professional. The goal is to share your process and learn as you go, isn’t it?
Awesome. Get yours here: http://showyrwork.com

» Bill Murray on how to drink champagne
I learned how to drink champagne a while ago. But the way I like to drink champagne is I like to make what we call a Montana Cooler, where you buy a case of champagne and you take all the bottles out, and you take all the cardboard out, and you put a garbage bag inside of it, then you put all the bottles back in and then you cover it with ice, and then you wrap it up and you close it. And that will keep it all cold for a weekend and you can drink every single bottle. And the way I like to drink it in a big pint glass with ice. I fill it with ice and I pour the champagne in it, because champagne can never be too cold. And the problem people have with champagne is they drink it and they crash with it, because the sugar content is so high and you get really dehydrated. But if you can get the ice in it, you can drink it supremely cold and at the same time you’re getting the melting ice, so it’s like a hydration level, and you can stay at this great level for a whole weekend. You don’t want to crash. You want to keep that buzz, that bling, that smile.
Man, we could’ve used this last night.

Don’t be Human Spam or a Vampire: Austin Kleon’s Advice for SXSW
Austin Kleon is a local artist and writer who is the first keynote speaker at this year’s South by Southwest Interactive. His book “Steal Like an Artist” spent six months on the New York Times best-seller list, and now he has a new advice guide for artists with this important lesson: show your work. KUT’s Nathan Bernier talked to Kleon in studio.
This was a fun interview. Thanks to Nathan and KUT.
Life’s too short for anxious score-keeping. Also, my grandmother is illiterate, and she’s one of the best people I know.
