I’m currently loving this artist’s self-help guide, which has just been released by Perigee, the same folks who published Wreck this Journal, Keri Smith’s best-selling book/sketchbook hybrid.
Lee’s guide is similar in that it’s a playful, contagiously optimistic, creative kick-starter of a book, guaranteed to get those artistic juices flowing.
