The Artist in the Office

I know I'm a couple days late on my blog post, but internet has been down at my house for the past several days. It's been spotty at best as of late, and now it's just gone. We'll have to wait until Sunday for the internet guy to come over and check it out. It's all very frustrating.
Anyhow, I figured I do a quick little post from another computer while I can.
I'm not sure if anyone has blogged about this book before, but it's currently in my cart at It's called The Artist in the Office: How to Creatively Survive and Thrive Seven Days a Week by Summer Pierre. Since most artists I know have "day jobs" aside from their illustration work, I think this will be a valuable read. I know I've been struggling with the work/art balance for years. Usually work wins out, unfortunately. Ms. Pierre covers different ways to keep your creativity fresh, and how to incorporate art into every day. I'm really looking forward to reading it.
Happy Friday, everyone! Hope you have a great weekend!


  1. Sounds like a good read---likely something all artists struggle with at some time in their lives. The cover is cool!

  2. That does look like a good book. I think they should make a sequel for stay-at-home-moms!

  3. Gina - good idea! They can call it "The Mommy in the Studio"! (o:
