Editorial Reviews

Creative Block is a get-out-of-hell free card. Read this book and the dark nights with your creative soul may go more gently." - Jerry Saltz, senior art critic, New York magazine"What makes the project particularly noteworthy is that while it features reflections from visual artists, most of their insights apply just as usefully to other creative endeavors, from writing and to entrepreneurship to, even, science." - Brain Pickings"This title is a great resource for any type of visually creative person working in any medium at any level to call upon when the inevitable artist's block strikes." - Starred Review, Library Journal"Danielle Krysta's Creative Block is truth-telling balm for all of us who wonder if we're the only ones who get stuck, second-guess ourselves, and dance with gremlins. I loved every page-the art, the interviewes, and the unBlock challenges." - Brene Brown, author Daring Greatly"Creative Block is a vital reminder that, as we move forward on our creative paths, the obstacles we encounter along the way don't have to be overwhelming. We can tap into our community and draw inspiration from one another-plowing forward and breaking new ground. " - Faythe Levine, author, director, and artist"
