The Creative License: Giving Yourself Permission to be the Artist You Truly Are The Creative License: Giving Yourself Permission to be the Artist You Truly Are by Danny Gregory

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Great book on giving yourself permission to dabble–or even push yourself more seriously–in various artistic spheres. Gregory will teach you to draw (hint: you already know how!), and to journal, giving you your own “creative license” to do what you like and embrace your inner artist. Whether you’re a frustrated, failed, first-time or burnt-out artist, this book will help get your creative life back on track. Like he says: “Art ain’t fancy or special. True art is democratic and human.” It’s about expressing yourself, whether that’s to millions or just to yourself, alone with your notebook. So get out there and grab your creative license and DO IT!

I started drawing little humorous pictures thanks to this book, and decided I wanted to start painting. So I went out and bought some acrylics, some brushes, and some paper and got started. Simple as that. You don’t have to study great art to start making art. (But if you want to eventually make great art, it’s probably a good idea to learn from the masters.) Get a copy of this book. It will definitely make you feel better about your drawing/painting/writing/other visual and/or artistic habits!
