Product details

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!" 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."

subtitle could just as easily be, How to Self-promote Without Being a Jerkface. It s an incredibly useful and compulsively readable short book. "Fast Company" Kleon addresses with equal parts humility, honesty, and humor one of the quintessential questions of the creative life: How do you get discovered ? In some ways, the book is the mirror-image of Kleon s debut rather than encouraging you to steal from others it offers a blueprint to making your work influential enough to be theft-worthy. "Brain Pickings" A must-read for anyone involved in the creative process. "LibraryReads" Kleon s powerful advice makes this small-format book not-at-all little. "Booklist" In this motivating book, packed with smart approaches, ideas and quotes, Kleon teaches you how best to navigate through creative work in the present day. . . . A certain and deserved bestseller. "The Bookseller" It s not often that I find myself reviewing a book that I can say has already changed my life. . . . At a crucial turn in this fabulous little wallop of a book comes the simple directive, Share something small every day. That something oughtn t be your Instagrammed latte or a selfie, but something useful or interesting about your work. Put enough somethings out there, and a lone artist or entrepreneur can soon be a productive part of a creative community. "BookPage""
