Steal Like an Artist: 10 things nobody told you about being creative (New York NY: Workman Publishing Company, 2012)

Even if you are like me and have problems drawing coherent stick figures, you can benefit from this work.

But, certainly, if you write, paint or photograph, Austin Kleon advises you — and his younger self — on how to steal creativity without resorting to outright artistic theft.

Pablo Picasso said “Art is theft” because artists don’t produce anything completely original. Kleon helps the artist recognize the good in others’ work, make it his own, and make it better.
