a book, 5 years, a give-away & a challenge

Thank you all soooooo much for entering! The winner of today’s give-away is Erin Candela! I’ll pop it in the mail tomorrow, Erin!

But wait… I have to give more away, right?! Right! Stay tuned, as more give-aways are coming in the next month or two {ps. thank you for all of your support, lovely comments, and mostly, for actually wanting this book! I am totally and completely overwhelmed xo}

ps. A few of you asked how to get a copy if you don’t live in North America… it will be on shelves world-wide, but if you can’t find it in your area, you can also buy it through amazon.com or through chroniclebooks.com : )


Boy oh boy, I love these artists so much! Gorgeous work, and such funny, smart, touching advice… I can’t believe that CREATIVE BLOCK is finally out in the world. Thank you so much to everyone that made it happen, and thank you so much to everyone who plans on reading it! xo {and a big thank you to Leslie Fandrich for these gorgeous photos!!!}


So, tomorrow, February 22, will mark five years since I wrote my very first post on The Jealous Curator. It also just so happens that my very first book, CREATIVE BLOCK, hit shelves all over the world this past Tuesday… needless to say, it’s been quite a week over here! And so we have to celebrate, right? How about a give-away!? Leave a comment on this post, and on Monday at noon (PST) I’ll draw one name and send that person a signed copy of the book. Deal?


I’ve heard from quite a few people that they plan to go one by one through the creative “unblock” projects given by each of the 50 artists in the book. So fun! If you do one, snap photo of whatever you make, pop it up on twitter or instagram and hashtag it with #creativeUNblock … I’m going to keep an eye out for them, and then I’ll set up a Facebook album to share some of my favorites from each month. I can’t wait to see what you make!

ps. BOOK EVENTS: I’ll be in San Francisco on March 5, and LA on March 22 and NYC on April 2 {links on the left sidebar}.Β The book will be available to buy in SF and LA because the events are at stores, but the event in New York is not at a bookstore, and is limited to 100 people so we’re selling tickets to it… right here {the ticket is $25 and gets you a book, drinks, snacks, and a super fun evening!}. More info coming soon on the May 15 Vancouver event.

    Congrats on 5 years! You’re the only art blog I follow because it always seems like you and I wish we thought of the same stuff, and that simple rule for your curation is so relatable and lovable. If imitation is the best form of flattery, jealousy must be a close second – and admitted, embraced jealousy is the best kind. Hope to see you in NYC in April

    I am an artist myself..but still struggeling with giving myself that ‘tag’ or ‘name’.
    I almost never have a block during my creative processes…but sometimes my work could need some guiding. I hope this book will help me putting my creative ideas into more effective processes and along the way mayby I get more familiar with being an artist!

    Could totally use the inspiration. I am in a graphic Design program where I have to be creative on demand which is a really big challenge. Of course, I know that this will take time to overcome but nonetheless am inspired to hear of other creatives that go through the same thing. Happy 5 years! Keep up the good work, I heart your blog!

  141. Camilla /// 02.21.2014 /// 11:37am

    It’s been great to follow you over the last few years, I was especially jealous of you being a jealous curator while I was doing my Curatorial Practice MA a couple of years ago. Good to see things still going strong.

  142. hilary kline /// 02.21.2014 /// 11:41am

    I’m thrilled for you — but even more thrilled for ME! I’ve already purchased a copy on amazon.com but would be excited to win a signed copy for a friend. Mazel tov!

    I found The Jealous Curator absolutely essential during my five year Fine Arts university career and even more inspiring and elucidating as a practicing artist. Thanks for your hard work in bringing lesser known artists to the fore.

  145. Jenn /// 02.21.2014 /// 11:46am

  151. Alina /// 02.21.2014 /// 12:06pm

    congrats on your fifth year – i hope for some more to come! i was just reading your guest post on sfgirlbybay some days ago (the one where you bought art for amelie) and i was jealous of that idea! i think of becoming an art buyer some day so i wished i had that idea to practice. maybe i can come up with something else. you see, you’re not the only (positive) jealous person out there ! i really enjoy reading your blog and i think i’ll get that book anyway. but because there’s a pretty small chance for me to get a signature from you (i live in germany :/) , i’d LOVE to get this copy!

  152. carol isaac /// 02.21.2014 /// 12:08pm

  157. M Jensen /// 02.21.2014 /// 12:27pm

    Congratulations. I love Your site – it is a welcome break in the endless rubbish on Facebook. The book would certainly be nice to win. By the way, the colours used is very “nordic” in a way, reminds me of birch trees and the very delicate almost fragile light of the Nordic spring.

  158. Ashley /// 02.21.2014 /// 12:32pm

    It looks like it would be a fun book to have!

  159. Stephanie Kroth /// 02.21.2014 /// 12:38pm

    Congratulations on your first book! I love what I’ve seen so far of it. You’ve managed to grab our attention in sharing great advice from artists, whilst reminding us to smile and not take it all too seriously. The sneeze metaphor was especially smile-inducing πŸ™‚

Best wishes for the next 5 years — can’t wait to see what they bring!

  199. Sue Skidmore /// 02.21.2014 /// 3:55pm

  205. Norman /// 02.21.2014 /// 4:20pm

    I received my copy of the book and I must say, it is a work of art in itself! I started reading with the Kindle version and although the content is exactly the same, the physical book blew me away. The quality of the prints alone make this book well worth the price tag. Excellent work!

  206. Adriana del Mar /// 02.21.2014 /// 4:38pm

    Congratulations! I’m jealous of the jealous curator!

  210. Andrea /// 02.21.2014 /// 5:04pm

    I think I need this book. Everytime I go to the studio all I ever do is tidy it up. Not making anything I am proud of. Inspiration like your blog, and this book is my best bet!!
    Congratulations. A book is such a great milestone.

  211. Lewis /// 02.21.2014 /// 5:20pm

    I’m a newcomer to your site, and I’m loving most of your posts so far. I like learning about new artists who work in media I might not look up on my own. I would love a book like this… I feel like lately my visual works are blooming but I’ve had writers’ block for about a year…

  214. Kathleen /// 02.21.2014 /// 5:37pm

  219. Dana Lee /// 02.21.2014 /// 6:09pm

    Ever since I have been introduced to this fabulous website by my art teacher, it has spontaneously become my favourite part of my daily routine – I would kick off my blanket, reach for my laptop and scroll down the pages of awesomeness in my floral pjs. You have inspired me so much in the past and your work has most probably left a huge contribution into the creation of my artwork. So naturally, your achievement in publishing the Creative Block book adds to my own happiness. I cannot wait until I pick up your book and start flipping through the inspiring pages. Congratulations xx

  220. Kaia /// 02.21.2014 /// 6:10pm

    I’ve been following your blog for a while now and, as a fine art’s student, I’m constantly inspired by the work that you feature! When I heard that your book had been released I knew that it had to be something I’d enjoy. I’ve planned on purchasing a copy for myself but it would be so amazing to have a signed copy! Please keep up all the amazing work! You have no idea how much you’ve inspired artists like myself!

  225. donna /// 02.21.2014 /// 6:51pm

    I’m dying to read this book. I saw a post about it by kpwerker on instagram and I think it is just the ticket for my recent loss of mojo. I just found your blog and I love it!

    An a fellow artist there is nothing more inspiring than hearing how my peers work through the same problems.

    I have just suddenly exploded out of an 18 month long creative block, with a feverish, slightly delirious weekend of flu which saw me take up needle and thread and begin to express a vision that seems to have come from nowhere- illness as muse? I’m glad to say that today I am feeling somewhat better and still my inspiration continues to flow. I’ve never felt so pleased to be sick.

    Congratulations on the publication of your book! I would really love a copy. I have had creative block for like the past 10 years. I only realised this though about 2 years ago. In desperation I have loaned a book of the Artists Way by Julia Cameron(on the advice of friends) and am no week 7. I have also begun an art class on a Thursday evening after work and one lesson down, I realise what a long way I have to go to just “let go”. I have been a single mother of twins for the last 17 years, and I didn’t realise what the stress of being the only breadwinner would do to my artistic abilities(having to fit a mould everyday to provide an income). Thank you for writing a book like this, I am so keen to give it a try. I hope I can win the give-away, because it would add so much value to my life. Even if I don’t though- thank you so much for writing a book like this to help people like me. Wish you all the best!

  339. virginia /// 02.24.2014 /// 4:39am
