Steal? That sounds bad!
Steal like an artist is smart little book! An ideal book for the starting creative. What makes it special?
First of all: the style of both writing and design.
Second: it has great tips about stealing.
Yes, Steal. Artists always steal. Often they don’t even know that they are doing it.
Everyday our eyes are confronted with thousands of artistic impressions.
Cars, commercials, ads, billboards, pictures and typography.
All these pictures are filtered and stored in our memory. When we create a creative piece we often don’t know that we were influenced.
This book is about that. It also provides guidelines on when it is good theft and when it is bad.
Helpful and a very good read indeed.
