I suggest any of you serious about not just the craft, but the psychological and emotional journey, of art subscribe to Mr. Howe's blog and purchase this book. John Howe's meandering excursions through the wilderness of creative expression is punctuated by moments of striking clarity and sound reason. All of it hidden among layers of complex thought and years of experience. His advice is both that of a wounded sage and a lost young child.
This week's blog article is particularly magnificent. I never tire of Howe's writing, I always find it relevant and inspiring, another's reassuring footprints in the snow when I thought I was the only one walking this landscape.
