If you’re like me, few things are as appealing as a book about the creative process. If it’s a book that helps unlock creativity…it’s even better. That’s why when I heard about Unstuck: 52 Ways to Get (and Keep) Your Creativity Flowing at Home, at Work & in Your Studio…I placed the order that day! And I wasn’t disappointed!
Created by artist and designer Noah Scalin, Unstuck isn’t really a book. It’s actually more like a set of 52 creative projects or assignments that prompt the creative process…in surprising ways. It shouldn’t be a surprise, I guess. Scalin is perhaps best known for his skull-a-day project (sounds weird…really more of a creativity driving process).
The projects are designed in such a way as to allow for very quick implementation (30 seconds to two minutes, medium engagement (2 minutes to 30 minutes) and longer involvement (an hour or more). Beyond a range of time involved, the projects also can be done in a variety of locations (home, work, anywhere).
There’s a wide variety of projects, too. Some involve basic drawing, others are word projects, and some involve creative assembly of some kind. For a creative wannabe like me…it’s a great set of exercises. My favorite (and yet still in process)? The Creativity Shrine! Trust me…it’s on the way!
This is a great little creativity booster. Can’t wait to work my way through it! You can order your copy right here.
