Your Inner Critic Is a Big Jerk

This charmingly illustrated guide shares ten truths about creativity, confidence, and how you can silence that stifling voice in your head.

This book is a salve for creative minds everywhere, and duct tape for the mouth of every artist’s inner critic. Author and art curator Danielle Krysa explores ten essential truths we all must face in order to defeat self-doubt.

Each encouraging chapter deconstructs a pivotal moment on the creative path—fear of the blank page, the dangers of jealousy, sharing work with others—and explains how to navigate roadblocks. Packed with helpful anecdotes, thoughts from successful creatives, and practical exercises gleaned from Danielle Krysa’s years of working with professional and aspiring artists—plus riotously apt illustrations from art world darling Martha Rich—this ebook arms readers with the most essential tool for their toolbox: the confidence they need to get down to business and make good work.
