I was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked this book. I knew it wasn't an art technique or project book, so I had no expectations of that. I genuinely like hearing people's stories and view points on their work and so this book was really interesting to me. I didn't agree with all viewpoints (far from it in some cases!), but really you don't agree with everyone in life, so why would I expect to in a book. :)

Their was a good range of featured artists with a lot I was familiar with, and also s

I received this book as a drawing winner and absorbed it over a weekend. The book shares thoughts, insights, confessions from the creative community of mixed media artists. There are tons of quotes answering a range of questions from the simple "What color rarely shows up in your work?" to the thought provoking "How do you express vulnerability in your art?" 100 artists share samples of their work and answer the author's questions.

It is beautifully laid out, full of beautiful images of all sorts

Loved reading the thoughts and views of other artists. As an artist, it helped to know that others struggle with the same issues as me and gave me ideas and new approaches for defining my life as an artist.

This was difficult because the book was arranged based on interview questions and with so many artists interviewed it was had to keep track of w ...more

"If you gave 100 artists the same set of art supplies and asked them to create, you would end up with 100 unique works of art." This is how the book starts - sounds compelling right? Sadly, it is not. While the art and layout of the book is a delight, the actual text is simply boring. I do read Seth's blog, and while this format works for a blog, I expected more from the book.

Really enjoyed the 1st section with the same artists answering the same questions. The second section with a lot of different artists was less interesting in some ways because you didn't get a chance to "know" them.
