Short Synopsis
Written by artists, for artists, this survival guide explores the way art gets made, the reason it often doesn't get made, and the nature of the difficulties that cause so many artists to give up along the way.

Full Synopsis
What is your art really about? Where is it going? What stands in the way of getting it there?

These are questions that matter, questions that recur at each stage of artistic development—and they are the source for this volume of wonderfully incisive commentary. Art & Fear explores the way art gets made, the reasons it often doesn't get made, and the nature of the difficulties that cause so many artists to give up along the way.

This is a book about what it feels like to sit in your studio or classroom, at your wheel or keyboard, easel or camera, trying to do the work you need to do. It is about committing your future to your own hands, placing free will above predestination, choice above chance. It is about finding your own work.
