Learning to Love You More

Its a book written by two artists (not pictured) who have come up with a solution to artistic frustration. As they explain in their introduction: "sometimes its easier to have someone tell you what to do."

In the book there are a number of assignments listed, things like:

56. Make a portrait of your friend's desires.

55. Photograph a significant outfit.

54. Draw the news.

53. Give advice to yourself in the past.

52. Write the phone call you wish you could have.

I have been doing these for the last couple of days and think they're fantastic. The book is amazing. Its so sad and beautiful and funny. I really recommend checking it out.

The best thing about it though is that you can send in you assigments and they are archived on the website. You can even win $500 dollars in monthly grants when they have them available.

Check it out and feel free to share your assignments with me; I'll be doing the same on this blog when I can.

Here's the site:
