What a GREAT resource for inspiration!!! As a professor of graphic design and a practicing designer and illustrator I sing the praises of 365 Expanded Edition: A Daily Creativity Journal in two parts: In the classroom and in the studio. In the classroom, students are provided with a fun structure for creativity and inspiration that can supplement instruction. This allows an instructor to give larger scale projects while students use 365: A Daily Creativity Journal through the semester to help facilitate creativity, brainstorming and learning while they are not in class. Also, and I cannot stress this enough, this book gives students the permission to fail and watch themselves succeed on their own. Any instructor can tell you this is a valuable asset, which is difficult to find in any book, much less one as entertaining and well-structured as this one. My students are all college level, but this book can EASILY fit into a beginner or intermediate level classroom! The benefits for instruction are really out of this world. In the studio we dread the moments of creative block. They may come seldom, but when they do they are ALWAYS poorly timed and seem to stretch on forever. I have found in my practice that the previous edition of Scalin’s book gave me a way out of creative block, and this edition gets even better. With new interviews and spotlights on inspirational creatives like artist Stephan Bucher, designer Sheena Matheiken, and musician Jonathan Coulton, this new expanded edition of 365: A Daily Creativity Journal has the guts to knock out the creative cobwebs and get work to start flowing! The new prompts in this edition provide just enough guidance, and once I start making, I have a new idea for that client project sitting on my desk— it happens every time! I believe this book is a GREAT edition to both a studio practice and classroom library. Get it and go make something!

Noah Scalin's original 365: A Daily Creativity Journal was fantastic to begin with, but the new expanded version is even better!! I have followed Noah Scalin for years and even participated in the month long challenge in April 2015. So how does this thing work? Let me break it down for you: Pick a subject, a medium, or a topic and run with it for 365 days. Sounds like an impossible challenge right? It is unless you have guidance. That is exactly what Noah's book gives. In fact, in this new version, you get not only the original 365 days, but a whole extra month to continue on. The prompts are totally random, wacky, and get the creative juices flowing. Each prompt can be interpreted a hundred different ways and the best part is that there is no wrong answer! This book is so helpful in giving a lost mind somewhere to start. But the book isn't just a prompt starter. Scattered throughout the book are interviews with various artists and their projects, struggles with creativity, lessons they learned from their own projects, and advise to fellow artists. Overall, I love this book. It is for everyone. From bored children to expert artists, this book contains something for people of all ages. It contains wisdom, encouragement, and fun prompts to keep aspiring artists out of a creative rut. In fact, there are times that the prompts create inspiration for other ideas to try. I thoroughly enjoyed my month long project and now this book can help me go for another 13 months! A person's imagination can really run wild with this one!
