True inspiration, not the same old advice
April 19, 2021
There are innumerable (almost) books out there for artists, many of which repeat each other. I own about half of them and actually was pleasantly surprised by this book. Creative block is a huge problem for most artists at least at some point, and the advice given in many of these books boils down to: find your muse, set a working schedule, create your niche. These suggestions do have their place, but often the ability to move ahead with one’s art has more of the feel of an existential crisis that resists simple solutions. So, imagine my surprise when I opened Ms. Pickens’ book and found a treasure chest of valuable wisdom for people like me. The chapters present actually useful considerations on issues like “time” and “work”, yes, but also on less obvious challenges such as grief and other people. The author is a practicing therapist who has been through the wars with artists who are locked in the tortuous and torturous pathways-cum-dead-ends that live and multiple in their minds. They (we) can play endless dialogue games about what keeps them from picking up the paint brush or sitting down at the computer or continuing to map out that dance routine. We know the problem and “solutions” but between Point A and Point B we somehow slide off the edge of the earth and land on shame, fear, or other catastrophic continents. (Do any of the metaphors in this review help?) Ms. Pickens has new insights into all of this, is empathetic, and – wait for it – creative. I heartily recommend this book as a prescription for what ails the creatives described above.

A great support book for artists

A very helpful book full of actionable advice for artists. Beth Pickens really understands artists and the support they need (emotional, financial, social, spiritual). Highly recommend this book! Make Your Art No Matter What PDF

It’s terrible. Reads like it was written by a committee headed by Bernie Sanders and AOC
June 30, 2021
There really isn’t anything new or genuinely helpful in this book and I found the repetitive attempts to push her political ideology to be too much and incredibly unhelpful.

As but one example, she claims that ‘punk damage’–meaning, if you came of age in a punk scene you have suffered monetary damage–is holding artists back because it prevents them for charging enough for their art, or even wanting to make money. She then writes, “Not all artists come from punk culture, which can read as a white person’s context though people of color have always been part of and intrinsically linked to punk.” Not even sure where to start with that statement.

Anyway, if you are looking for help to be a more productive artist, this is not it. Much better books out there.
