ALL CLICKABLE LINKS
The War of Art: Break Through the Blocks and Win Your Inner Creative Battles, by Steven Pressfield - This book is considered to be The Bible of Motivation for any creative person. With its short, to the point writing, Pressfield creates a battle with “Resistance”, and gives the artist the necessary mental tools to go to war with any creative block. This is one of my personal favorite books.
The Making of Star Wars: The Definitive Story Behind the Original Film, by J.W. Rinzler - A detailed look into George Lucas’s vision and creation of Star Wars. This book has all the goodies inside including behind-the-scenes photos, script pages, and stories of how this mega franchise was created.
Steal Like an Artist: 10 Things Nobody Told You About Being Creative, by Austin Kleon - This is a great stocking stuffer for any creative type out there. Kleon’s first book in his series of motivational insights is a great gift to help any struggling artist out there. A shift in perspective is sometimes all we need.

Graphic Drawing Tablet - For any digital artist out there, this is a necessity. Looking to start creating and selling your own NFT’s? This is a great place to start.
