Austin Kleon  I'm a writer who draws. I make art with words and books with pictures. Author of STEAL LIKE AN ARTIST & other books. New one in April: @keepgoingbook

“I love the winter, with its imprisonment and its cold, for it compels the prisoner to try new fields and resources.”
—Thoreau, journal, Dec. 5, 1856

About a little more than a year ago my best friend got me @austinkleon ’s books. Best collection to get and support an artist friend to help stay motivated.

#tbt Working on @keepgoingbook back in March. (Finished copy from the printer is in the mail!) #showyourwork

6-year-old got ahold of the @keepgoingbook galley 😊

I have a bulletin board in my studio above my computer where I write and I pin pictures of some of my favorite people up there for inspiration. Once a book is done, I take a photograph of the board, and pull all the stuff off for the next one...

I bought this book three years ago and I just finished... a wonderful little book...

Recording notebook. Late 90s, around age 15 or 16. I sat down with the White Album and mapped all the instruments. I can't imagine listening to a piece of music as closely now as I did then.

Somebody wanted to see the books on my nightstand and since I'm bored and bedridden what the heck.
