Overview

Do you see yourself as an artist?

Colin Egglesfield never thought an artistic career path was realistic. He always made room for creativity, but it was never his life's focus. But then a chance encounter with an acting class, before committing to medical school, made Colin realize that an artistic career was possible. The path wasn't easy. Breaking into Hollywood can be quite a challenge. On top of that, he was diagnosed with cancer, not once, but twice.

In "Agile Artist," Colin shares lessons he learned from his struggles to make a career in Hollywood, finding courage and support through personal health battles and tragedies. Along the way, he shares the riveting story of his ground-zero experience on 9/11 as well as his social impact projects in Chicago. This is the story of Colin's journey into creative discovery and his attempts to connect with a more authentic version of himself to become an Agile Artist.

Colin emphasizes his belief that we are all artists in some form or another, even if we haven't connected with that part of ourselves. In 'Agile Artist,' he shares his rich life stores and provides plenty of inventive strategies to help you break through to your creative, true self. Beyond this powerful book Colin invites you to join his artist community, where together, we can all support, motivate and share who we are to create not only better lives but a better world.
