Siapa bilang mencuri itu buruk? Mencuri adalah keharusan! Tak Percaya? Orang-orang hebat sudah membuktikannya. Bintang basket Kobe Bryant mengaku bahwa semua gerakannya di lapangan dia curi dari para idolanya. Untuk menciptakan komputer Mac, Steve Jobs mencuri ide dari Xerox. Beatles awalnya adalah band yang menyanyikan lagu-lagu penyanyi lain. Tak ada yang orisinal. Semua kreasi berasal dari sesuatu yang pernah ada. Dan kreativitas tidak pernah lahir begitu saja, butuh proses juga perlu diasah. Mencuri ide adalah awal menumbuhkannya. Kreatif adalah melihat dari sudut pandang berbeda. Kreatif adalah mampu menyiasati keterbatasan. Kreatif adalah menemukan solusi terbaik dari permasalahan. Buku ini mengembangkan kreativitasmu, siapa pun kamu, dalam bidang apa pun kamu berkarya. [Mizan, Noura Books, Terjemahan, Kreatif, Karya, Indonesia]
In this 2012 book, author Austin Kleon approaches an often-considered taboo subject of the world of creative works: copying another's work. While most consider the idea of copying another's style or design to be wrong, Austin says it doesn't have to be. Instead, Kleon suggests that the best creative ideas come from building off of ideas that others have already had. Kleon suggests that creativity is everywhere and is for everyone, so even if you don't feel like you are as great of an author, painter, photographer, or whatever your chosen medium may be, you should still learn from the best and try your best to imitate their work. This, he says, is how everyone finds their own individual style. While discussing what he calls "the inevitability of influence," Kleon tells his readers to "live outside the vacuum," and just to have fun with their art. He says there is no such thing as an original idea in today's creative world. Instead, every artist is merely taking ideas from one another and adding their own stylistic elements. "You don't need to be a genius," he says. "You just need to be yourself." Throughout the book, which is organized into eleven major subheadings, Kleon tells us to create what we would enjoy in the hope that someone else will enjoy it, too. Instead of creating something popular or trendy to cater to the masses, we should instead simply create to please ourselves. After all, new trends are forged when people are willing to step outside of the box. The book, itself, is an easy and fun read and suitable for young adults as well as more seasoned artists.

A 10th anniversary deluxe edition of the bestselling book to inspire creativity for artists and creatives of all types: an oversized hardcover with ribbon marker, hand-drawn endpapers, and a new afterword by the author.
In his New York Times bestseller Steal Like an Artist, Austin Kleon showed readers how to unlock their creativity by “stealing” from the community of other movers and shakers. Now, in an even more forward-thinking and necessary book, he shows how to take that critical next step on a creative journey—getting known. Show Your Work! is about why generosity trumps genius. It’s about getting findable, about using the network instead of wasting time “networking.” It’s not self-promotion, it’s self-discovery—let others into your process, then let them steal from you. Filled with illustrations, quotes, stories, and examples, Show Your Work! offers ten transformative rules for being open, generous, brave, productive. In chapters such as You Don’t Have to Be a Genius; Share Something Small Every Day; and Stick Around, Kleon creates a user’s manual for embracing the communal nature of creativity— what he calls the “ecology of talent.” From broader life lessons about work (you can’t find your voice if you don’t use it) to the etiquette of sharing—and the dangers of oversharing—to the practicalities of Internet life (build a good domain name; give credit when credit is due), it’s an inspiring manifesto for succeeding as any kind of artist or entrepreneur in the digital age.
Keep Working. Keep Playing. Keep Creating. In his previous books Steal Like an Artist and Show Your Work!, both New York Times bestsellers, Austin Kleon gave readers the keys to unlock their creativity and showed them how to become known. Now he offers his most inspiring work yet, with ten simple rules for how to stay creative, focused, and true to yourself—for life. The creative life is not a linear journey to a finish line, it’s a loop—so find a daily routine, because today is the only day that matters. Disconnect from the world to connect with yourself—sometimes you just have to switch into airplane mode. Keep Going celebrates getting outdoors and taking a walk (as director Ingmar Bergman told his daughter, ”The demons hate fresh air”). Pay attention, and especially pay attention to what you pay attention to. Worry less about getting things done, and more about the worth of what you’re doing. Instead of focusing on making your mark, work to leave things better than you found them. Keep Going and its timeless, practical, and ethical principles are for anyone trying to sustain a meaningful and productive life.
“Some of the results are hilarious, some are profound and even unsettling, but they are never bland or boring.” — Ephermerist Newspaper article + sharpie = Newspaper Blackout Poetry: Instead of starting with a blank page, poet Austin Kleon grabs a newspaper and a permanent marker and eliminates the words he doesn’t need. Fans of Not Quite What I Was Planning and Post Secret will love these unique and compelling poems culled from Austin’s popular website.

In the vein of "Steal Like An Artist" by Austin Kleon, "Big Magic" by Elizabeth Gilbert and "The War of Art" by Steven Pressfield, Blackburn breaks down inspiration into mangeable chunks and kicks the fear of creating right in the butt. Compiled from her lectures to students over 25 years of teaching painters, Tesia Blackburn's essays on creativity are meant to get you thinking and working. You think you need special training? You don't. You think you need a big studio? You don't. You just need the willingness to do the work. You can make art. Right here, right now.

Postmodern art emerged in the late 1960s following a time period when art had been defined by superstars like Pablo Picasso and Salvador Dalí. Rejecting the idea of art being exclusive to professionals, artists who emerged during the postmodern era believed anyone could be an artist and anything could be art. Through exciting main text featuring annotated quotes from experts, detailed sidebars, and examples of postmodern art, readers explore how the foundations of art were challenged by postmodern artists such as Andy Warhol and Barbara Kruger and also how their work still impacts today's art world.
