I happen to own this book and I thought I would recommend it to you all for some inspiration and/or laughs.

Woohoo! The moment you have all been waiting for.. the very first CreativeMornings/Austin talk is now live online!
The speaker is none other than Austin Kleon, the force behind Steal Like an Artist and Newspaper Blackout. Austin speaks on April’s theme of the future, by attempting to set the ground rules for future discussions between artists and designers—in terms of how we discuss our work and process.
“I think we’re living in this mass fetishization of creativity,” he says. “And you can tell that from the way we use ‘creative’ as a noun.” He goes on to breakdown some of his previous advice: Do Good Work and Share It With People, on what is good, what is work, and how we should share.
Excellent talk. Watch it here.
A transcription and the slides from the talk are here.

Is it weird and narcissistic to reblog your own book quotes? Of course it is. But this is probably my favorite paragraph from Steal Like An Artist.

“Everyone underestimates what ten minutes a day will do. You do something a little bit for ten years, you come out with something.”
—Austin Kleon, speaker at this Friday’s CreativeMornings/ATX
We’re pretty psyched about Sidebar, a new initiative championed by our Austin, TX chapter to introduce speakers before events, and highlight Austin’s late night culture. The CreativeMornings/Austin crew sat down with this week’s speaker to discuss writing, creativity and his upcoming talk. Two hours and several drinks later, this is the edited version, available to listen on SoundCloud.
Listen to it here.
I was 3 drinks in when this was recorded.
