From ABRAMS press copy:
“From award-winning artist and author Christoph Niemann comes a collection of witty illustrations and whimsical views on working creatively. Taking its cue from his New York Times column Abstract Sunday, this book covers Niemann’s entire career and showcases brilliant observations of contemporary life through sketches, travel journals, and popular newspaper features. The narrative guides readers through Christoph’s creative process, how he built his career, and how he overcomes the internal and external obstacles that creative people face—all presented with disarming wit and intellect.”

The story of the book is based on a presentation Christoph gave at the 99U conference in New York.

He talks about tackling the (very real and relevant) creative fears that have been a constant companion throughout his professional life:

I. I’m not good enough

II. My work is irrelevant and soon I’ll be broke

III. I’m out of ideas
