Book Review Monday: Caffeine for the Creative Mind by Stefan Mamaw and Wendy Lee Oldfield

This book is an inspirational type of book. The subtitle is 250 exercises to wake up your brain. It is just that: a bunch of ideas to spark creativity and the thought process.There are numerous ways to light that spark- art exercises, writing exercises, thought exercises among other creativity revving exercises.

It's a great little book if your planning a class or need to get your engine running. The great thing about this book is that it's focused on exercises specifically for the artist rather than the graphic designer. Many of the exercises also make excellent journaling prompts and get creative day dreams running.

I give this book 4/5 binder needles and 1 paint covered thumb up.

If you're stuck in a rut this is a great book to pick up and check out, even if you only thumb through it at your local B&N.
