schema:description"A guide to creativity in the digital age, this book presents ten transformative principles to help readers discover their artistic side and build a more creative life. Offers advice and encouragement to help readers foster creativity and be artistically productive in a wide variety of endeavors. You don't need to be a genius, you just need to be yourself. That's the message from the author, a young writer and artist who knows that creativity is everywhere, creativity is for everyone. A manifesto for the digital age, this is a guide whose positive message, graphic look and illustrations, exercises, and examples will put readers directly in touch with their artistic side. When the author was asked to address college students in upstate New York, he shaped his speech around the ten things he wished someone had told him when he was starting out. The talk went viral, and its author dug deeper into his own ideas to create the book. The result is inspiring, hip, original, practical, and entertaining. It's filled with new truths about creativity: Nothing is original, so embrace influence, school yourself through the work of others, collect ideas, and remix and re-imagine to discover your own path. Follow your interests wherever they take you. Forget the old cliche about writing what you know; instead write the book you want to read, make the movie you want to watch. Stay smart, stay out of debt, and risk being boring in the everyday world so that you have the space to be wild and daring in your imagination and your work. -- From book cover."@en
