Danielle Krysa - Your Inner Critic is a Big Jerk (San Francisco)

This book is duct tape for the mouth of every artist's inner critic. Silencing that stifling voice once and for all, this salve for creatives introduces ten truths they must face in order to defeat self-doubt. Each encouraging chapter deconstructs a pivotal moment on the path to success—fear of the blank page, the dangers of jealousy, sharing work with others—and explains how to navigate roadblock. Your Inner Critic is a Big Jerk is 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 book arms readers with the most essential tool for their toolbox: the confidence they need to get down to business and make good work.

Danielle Krysa has a BFA in Fine Arts, and a post-grad in graphic design. She is the writer/curator behind the contemporary art site, The Jealous Curator.  In 2014 she published two books, both with Chronicle Books, titled Creative Block and Collage.  Along with writing, Danielle has also had the great pleasure of speaking at TEDx, PIXAR, Creative Mornings, CreativeLive and was interviewed for several video segments on oprah.com.
