Hi everyone, I’m really excited to introduce my new book collection CREATIVE STRUGGLE: Illustrated Advice From Masters of Creativity. The comics included have never been collected before and will be released on January 16, 2018.

This book collects my recent series of comics on creativity, featuring advice from Van Gogh, da Vinci, Hemingway, Frida Kahlo, Stephen King, Tchaikovsky, Kurosawa, Nikola Tesla, Brené Brown and more.

It also includes a new and exclusive comic containing my 8 tips on how to succeed in living a creative life, boiling down everything I’ve learned from the past five years of being a full-time cartoonist. Here’s the first tip:

Battle creative boredom with Tchaikovsky!

Fight writer’s block with Mary Shelley!

Overcome addiction and creative obsession with Stephen King!

This is a small and affordable book that will give you a boost when you’re trying to break through your own creative struggle or makes the perfect gift for a creative friend.
