Permission to be the artist you truly are

A couple of years ago I bougth this book by Danny Gregory.
This is truly a great book!

Creativity is someting we are all born with, but somewhere along the way, 
we convince ourselves we don’t have the right to label ourselves as creative or artists. 
This book is Danny´s attempt to reverse that with a step-by-step process 
to reawaken the creative impulse in us all. 
It’s designed to be fun, easy, a little snarky, and adictive.  
His goal is to help you lay the foundation for a lifelong habit of drawing, 
making things, and becoming what you always dreamed of being — an artist. 
It’s crammed with drawings and paintings and designed to be your constant, dog-eared, 
coffee-stained sidekick. Pick yours up today.

Thank you Danny for giving me huge inspiration!

Danny´s third book was the beginning of a whole new chapter in his publishing career
— and in his life.
It’s a memoir of his wife’s parapalegia, the accident that caused it, and how it changed everything.
It’s also about drawing and how he discovered its ability to give him perspective and peace.
It has been published in hardcover and paperback and even in Korean.
It has also spawned all sorts of groups and evernts as people came
to share his discoveries and applied them to their own lives. 
It’s a funny book — most people who buy a copy end up buying lots more to give to their friends. Fortunately, there are some left. Get yours here.
