Features of Show Your Work PDF By Austin Kleon
In his New York Times bestseller Steal Like an Artist, Austin Kleon showed readers how to unlock their creativity by “stealing” from the community of other movers and shakers. Now, in an even more forward-thinking and necessary book, he shows how to take that critical next step on a creative journey—getting known. Show Your Work PDF By Austin Kleon
Show Your Work! is about why generosity trumps genius. It’s about getting findable, about using the network instead of wasting time “networking.” It’s not self-promotion, it’s self-discovery—let others into your process, then let them steal from you. Filled with illustrations, quotes, stories, and examples, Show Your Work! offers ten transformative rules for being open, generous, brave, productive.
In chapters such as You Don’t Have to Be a Genius; Share Something Small Every Day; and Stick Around, Kleon creates a user’s manual for embracing the communal nature of creativity— what he calls the “ecology of talent.” From broader life lessons about work (you can’t find your voice if you don’t use it) to the etiquette of sharing—and the dangers of oversharing—to the practicalities of Internet life (build a good domain name; give credit when credit is due), it’s an inspiring manifesto for succeeding as any kind of artist or entrepreneur in the digital age.

I really loved “Steal Like an Artist”. I felt like it was inspiring and super helpful. This book, not as much. I don’t have a problem with sharing my work, and process and giving credit to other artists. Those are all great ideas. I got stuck on the notion that I should be sharing what I’m doing every day. I also don’t like the idea of showing works in progress and talking about my process via social media. I know people that do this and unless they’re a really great artist, I find this really annoying. There’s a narcissistic component to this, that I think is rampant in social media. The idea that I’m such a compelling figure that everyone is interested in every little thing that I do is nauseating as far as I’m concerned. I also think that art shouldn’t be talked about too much. Some should be left to mystery. Maybe it’s a generational thing. Kleon is quite a bit younger than me, and over-sharing is just the norm now. Doesn’t mean I have to like it.
I’m glad it was short.

I was required to read this for a college course with a detailed quiz after so I had to read it more than once. I liked the overall general concepts of the book. But they were pretty basic marketing that most people know after a first time google search (have a website, reach out on social media, remind people you exist). Also the cute artsy format worked most of the time (more on that below).
Here’s what I didn’t like:
The constant single sentence celebrity name dropping as examples of success being constantly used. I know Kleon’s most famous work is “Steal Like an Artist” but I think he could have done without constantly using other peoples words to make a point where his own would have been fine. Even if it was limited to just once per page instead of 2-3 times it would have been less grating.
Also the “art” pages would have fit better if they weren’t placed in the middle of a sentence so often.
NOT life changing
March 28, 2021
I bought this book based on a recommendation from Ali Abdaal’s YouTube channel. (Shout out to Ali!) There he professed that this series of books “changed his life.”
It’s safe to say that expectations were set rather too high. Certainly, there’s no way I could ever call this book life-changing. The best I can say is it’s a very short, light read, with occasional thought-provoking quotes.
A large chunk of this book will be obvious to anyone who’s grown up using the internet. Perhaps in 2014 when it was first published there was more of a need for such insights. We often forget how fast things change.
One thing that bugged me throughout was the ugly and unnecessary illustrations that failed to add anything—blacked out words, reminiscent of the pasted newspaper letters from a cartoon kidnapper’s ransom note.

After reading his How to Steal Like an Artist I was eager to read this one as well. This book failed on many levels. Its main focus is internet/social media recognition. Very little on actually showing work. And it is already outdated. The internet/social media world has drastically changed in four years and by following his suggestions your work would most likely be shared and copied and made into memes all outside your realm of ownership. If possible I am returning this book.
A Fantastic Book for Writers and Other Creative People
September 15, 2018
Such a fantastic book for creatively minded people! It’s the kind of book that you can pick up and set down over and over again. A good book to have on your nightstand or—dare I say it—in your bathroom. (Yes, I’m a bathroom reader. ) I’d certainly give it away as a gift. It would make a nice graduation present for a budding artist or writer.
I constantly over-think my writing. I’m afraid to share my words and feelings with others. I’ve certainly grown as a person over the years, but my journey seems to be three steps forward, two steps back. Yes, I’m making progress. Slowly. SOOO slowly. This book helped me to realize that what I’m doing DOES have value and I appreciate the author reminding me of this!
