Slow Start

You may have come to this book with the idea that it's strictly about art. It's not. It's also about contemporary politics; but only a little. I almost gave up on this book thinking that it wasn't addressing me or my needs, But after the first chapter it shifted to be about exactly what I expected. While I am a very political animal and the author's politics align with mine succinctly I wasn't looking for a book about activism. A little redundant I know; but if you picked this up and gave up on it too soon. get back to it. The advice in here is solid and inspiring. Artists MUST make art and this little gem helps when self doubt starts to creep in.
