Woohoo! The Jealous Curator has put out a book and (check out the pic below) I got my hands on one! If you don't know about The Jealous Curator you have to check it out here. It is a blog which features awesome artwork by artists from all over the globe. The new book is called "Creative Block" and it's worth it's weight in gold. This book offers insight via interviews with 50 artists. At the end of each artist's section the artist featured offers a great project/experiment idea for unlocking creativity.

The interviews in the book are so well-crafted and not like other artist interviews. These interviews are for artists by artists. So if you are reading this and you are an artist - this book is for you!! The questions really give you the opportunity to hear the concerns and challenges of other artists and how they work to overcome difficulties in their practice. Here is part of the section on artist Jessica Bell who creates beautiful collages with fabric:

Definately check out Creative Block when you have a moment. The projects outlined in each section look amazing and if you decide to do one you can post it on Instagram or Twitter with the hashtag #creativeUNblock for a chance to get yours featured on The Jealous Curator's Facebook page.
