Few artists achieve fame and fortune, but that doesn’t mean your creative life can’t flourish. I interviewed dozens of creative people and meshed their thoughts with my own experience to produce this rallying cry for small potatoes – relentlessly creative individuals whose focus is rooted in making cool, meaningful work and maintaining a creative life without much hope of what society conceives of as recognition. Sections range from the practice of art making and wrangling self-doubt to DIY marketing and self-promotion… and much MUCH MORE!

288 pages of Small Potato encouragement, commiseration, anecdotes, hacks and philosophy.

Hand illustrated throughout! Can you dig it?|
