The Opposite Is Also True: A Journal of Creative Wisdom for Artists

by Cleo Papanikolas
£14.99   hardback  Sasquatch Books (2018)

The Opposite Is Also True: A Journal of Creative Wisdom for Artists by Cleo Papanikolas For visual artists or any creative person looking to push their art to thrive in unexpected ways, this beautifully illustrated guided journal challenges you to experiment both within and outside the box.
 
Using the premise that the creative journey is nonlinear and subject to change at any given moment, The Opposite Is Also True presents pairs of advice that intentionally contradict themselves. Dedicate a workspace or work anywhere; learn from a mentor or teach yourself; make something every day or take a break.
 
Divided into three sections — Pack Your Kit, Find Your Path, and Look Around — each tackles practicalities as well as the abstract in inspirational advice, quotes, and exercises to open your mind. Following each dual entry are two related pages with opposite calls to action and plenty of space to execute them — like making a tidy pencil sketch on one side or pouring your thoughts out in bold permanent marker on the other.
 
Use this book when your usual process isn’t working and you need a little nudge, or challenge a comfortable creative routine with alternate possibilities. The advice within can relate to a tiny brushstroke or the whole arc of your career.
