Believe in yourself.
You are an artist.
This book looks simple but it will kick your butt.
— Steven Pressfield, the best-selling author of The War of Art
This is not a typical book. It has lots of space for drawing, but no room for excuses. It’s a coloring book for those who haven’t colored in too long. So read it with a pen in your hand, and draw on its pages, as intended. Even if what you need to create is a company, a song, or the life of your dreams, start sketching it now.
— Derek Sivers, founder of CD Baby and bestselling author of Anything You Want
If you believed the lie that you can’t make art, then this manifesto is for you. It will re-awaken your passion and imagination and get you doing what you were born to do — create.
— Jeff Goins, Author of Real Artists Don’t Starve
This manifesto is a rallying cry for anyone who was ever told that they couldn’t draw, couldn’t paint, couldn’t create art. It’s simply a matter of perspective – your art may not be the same as someone else’s. And there’s nothing wrong with that!
— Danny Iny, Author of Leveraged Learning

Pamela Fernuik (Hodges)
Hi! I am Pamela Fernuik, ( The artist formerly known as Pamela Hodges). I am an artist and a writer. Discouraged by an art teacher who told me I couldn’t draw I spent decades believing I wasn’t any good at art. We have to stop comparing our art to what other people create and make art that is a reflection of who we are, original and one of a kind. No one has the right to tell us we can’t draw.
