Our Education, Austin Kleon, 2014

Always honored to get a blog from someone I follow.

I don’t usually post these to this tumblr, although, maybe I should. I post a new blackout every day on Instagram→

99U interview with Austin Kleon

Jocelyn K. Glei interviewed me for the 99U’s new quarterly print rag:

[Christopher Hitchens] said that writing a book is like getting a free education that lasts a lifetime. He was talking about how the people who read his books would email him and write him letters or he would meet them at events, and they were constantly feeding him stuff. He wasn’t just learning from writing the book, he was also learning from people’s reactions to the book.

And I think that’s the way to think about self-promotion: Think about it as opening the door to learning. In the simple act of sharing your creative process, sharing the stuff that you make, and sharing your ideas, you will get responses that feed back into your work.

And then the trick becomes how to let that feedback in without letting it hurt you. And that’s the dance of the artistic life, isn’t it? Separating what’s helpful from what’s destructive.

Bonus points to them for using the great John Cleese quote from the intro to Show Your Work!

Rain Taxi talks with Austin Kleon

This was a fun little interview. I like how angry I look in the preview frame.
