Summary

An artist's unique voice is their calling card. It's what makes each of their works vital and particular. But developing such singular artistry requires effort and persistence.

Featuring advice from Congdon herself and interviews with a roster of established artists, illustrators, and creatives, this one-of-a-kind book will show listeners how to identify and nurture their own visual identity, navigate the influence of artists they admire, push through fear and insecurity, and appreciate the value of their personal journey.

This book works for singers too

I am a singer and this book has great tips that can also help me find my artistic voice. In my mind the water colors and painting mediums that she spoke of were like vibrato frequencies and belting verses falsetto or even wether I use the major or minor scale to sing original songs. The book will be helpful to those who are more focused on the answer than the question and you will become more aware of who you really are when you allow yourself to do some of the suggestions in the book.
