Why a creativity guide?
Making things is hard.
Realizing a vision takes courage. Believing in your work is a risk.
You don’t need to do it alone.
Ascending the summit of Mt. Everest, smart mountain climbers depend upon a sherpa. Climbers trust that their guide’s experienced hand helps them to navigate pitfalls and dangers, keeping the path forward clear and visible, and ensuring the party remains safe and successful. In my years as a working artist, there have been countless times when I wished there was a guide for creative projects - a companion along the way beyond a close friend or colleague - to help me chart my course.
Resources abound about the rewards and necessity of creativity. And resources abound about marketing the results of creativity. Few resources exist, however, for the artist in need of support and direction in making their way through a project, a path always filled with surprises, risks, rewards, loneliness, discoveries, doubts, and exciting questions.
If that sounds like you, rest easy: I’m, Peter, your Creativity Guide. I’m here to help to you.
