I’m currently loving this artist’s self-help guide, which has just been released by Perigee, the same folks who published Wreck this Journal, Keri Smith’s best-selling book/sketchbook hybrid.
Lee’s guide is similar in that it’s a playful, contagiously optimistic, creative kick-starter of a book, guaranteed to get those artistic juices flowing. As some of you may recall, overcoming artist’s block was the central theme of my graduate show earlier this year, so I applaud anyone who offers empowering exercises and methods to break down your block. As an illustrator, Lee understands firsthand the anguish of getting stuck in a miserable artistic rut.
Whether it’s perfectionism, procrastination, or plain old fear that’s holding you back, get ready to get inspired.

i still can’t believe americans don’t call car parks
car parks wtf
is that where you bring your car on weekends so it can play with other cars
NO IT’S WHERE YOU PARK YOUR FUCKING CAR
Almost like an area of land, a lot if you will, for parking cars. A parking lot.
I keep imagining little Hondas on swing sets
Vote with your wallet. Avoid Wal-Mart.
when will america learn….
We won’t learn, because our education system sucks
Instead of treating kids like machines in a factory, being created into obedient workers. It looks like in Finland they’re treated like actual humans.
it’s also because all teachers there have masters’ degrees, and teaching is seen as a prestigious profession like medicine or law.
What’s actually wrong with American schools is not that they’re not like Finnish schools.
What’s wrong with American schools is that they’re an outdated relic of the early 20th century, where the object was to train a child to have the mindset required to work in a factory job long hours of the day, as at the time that mandatory public school was instituted, that was the main expectation of children.
As the industrial age faded and the US entered the era of private sector jobs, the education system failed to reflect that change, and they’re still training us to have the mindset for an industrial job, not a job in today’s job market.
The problem with American schools is not that they’re not like Finnish schools.
The problem with American schools is that they’re preparing us for jobs that no longer exist.
