This is the second book by Austin Kleon, I reviewed his first book “Steal Like an Artist” back in April 2012. This new book Show Your Work!: 10 Ways to Share Your Creativity and Get Discovered is tips and suggestions about how to share your work online.
Finding an Audience
As frequent readers of my blog know I write a lot about finding an audience for your work. In this day and age when there are so many artists sharing their work on the internet it can be difficult to get seen and find those people who will truly connect with your work. This gives a lot of tips on how to find this audience and while a lot of them are common sense, listen to your audience, don’t hoard your work, don’t spam, it never hurts to be reminded.
More important than giving me tips on how to find my audience, this book provided me with motivation. It makes we want to get out there and share my work more, connect with fellow creatives, and just get out. This is exactly the sort of thing that also makes me more creative and want to create more. It’s a self-perpuating cycle that happens to be going the direction I want to go.
This is an easy read and well worth the time. Pick up a copy and then let me know how you liked it.
