Synopsis

344 Questions The Creative Person's Do-It-Yourself Guide to Insight, Survival, and Artistic Fulfillment by Stefan G. Bucher

The secret to creative success lies not in knowing the right answers, but in knowing how to ask the right questions-and this little book is full of them! A veritable therapy session on paper, 344 Questions is composed entirely of questions designed to help you determine where you are in your life and career, where you want to be, and how to get there. Hopefully, you'll also laugh along the way. Each spread in this colorful, pocket-sized book contains a series of several questions illustrated in Stefan Bucher's unique, whimsical, hand-lettered style. The questions are designed to get you thinking and drawing and writing with room on each spread to fill in the blanks and jot down ideas. Sample questions include: Can you name 10 things that reliably stress you out? Do you need 10 more spaces? Was filling out lists on your list? Or the decimal system? What happens when you get stressed out? Do you think stress is heroic? Can you please convince me that that's really stupid? In addition to the questions provided by Bucher, the book features questions from creative celebrities who share some of the questions they were asked on the way to success, or, in some cases, the questions they wish they had been asked. The talented group of writers, musicians, and artists contributing to the book include: * Jed Alger * Judd Apatow * Marian Bantjes * Ken Carbone * Tim Carvell * Deanne Cheuk * Wayne Coyne * Russell Davies * Arem Duplessis * Dave Eggers * Karen Fowler * Ze Frank * Jona Frank * Jill Greenberg * Stanley Hainsworth * Peter Hannan * Debbie Millman * Rick Morris * Seth Morris * Christoph Niemann * David Norland * Patton Oswalt * Martha Rich * Stefan Sagmeister * Meredith Scardino * J.J. Sedelmaier * Dave Stewart * Lara Tomlin * Jakob Trollback * Rick Valicenti * Esther Pearl Watson * Lynda Weinman * Jan Wilker * Doyald Young * Tarsem If you answer even half of the questions in this book, it will change your life.
