Author Danielle Krysa joined host Janeane Bernstein to talk about her book "Your Inner Critic Is a Big Jerk: And Other Truths About Being Creative."

Thanks to Danielle Krysa for calling in today! If you missed her conversation with Janeane Bernstein, listen here!

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. 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.


From her website,
I have a BFA in Visual Arts {painting, printmaking, and art history}, and a post-grad in design. I’ve worked as a designer and Creative Director for years, but have never stopped loving and creating art. After decades of looking at beautiful contemporary art and thinking “Damn, I wish I thought of that”, I decided to say it out loud, and The Jealous Curator was born. Every day since February 22, 2009 I have written a daily post showcasing artwork from around the world. This has lead to opportunities that I truly never could have imagined – writing books, curating art exhibitions, speaking at events, and hosting my own podcast. It’s been quite a ride, and I can’t wait to see what happens next.

Danielle Krysa is the writer/curator behind the contemporary art website the Jealous Curator, and the author of Creative Block and Collage. She lives in British Columbia.

Martha Rich is a Philadelphia-based fine and commercial artist.
