"Adam J. Kurtz does a great job of expressing the unique anxiety that often comes with being a creative person. [His] new book, Things Are What You Make Of Them, is page after page of notes that serve as little nudges out of creative slumps and the negative self-talk that often accompanies them." –BuzzFeed
From the creative mind and heart of designer Adam J. Kurtz comes this upbeat rallying cry for creators of all stripes. Expanding on a series of popular essays, this handwritten and heartfelt book shares wisdom and empathy from one working artist to others. Perforated tear-and-share pages make it easy to display themost crucial reminders or to pass a bit of advice on to someone who needs it.
As wry and cheeky as it is empathic and empowering, this deceptively simple, vibrantly full-color book will be a touchstone for writers, artists, entrepreneurs, and anyone else who wants to be more creative--even when it would be easier to give up and act normal.
