You Might Be An Artist If...
By Lauren Purje
You Might Be An Artist If... is an addictive assortment of comics about the ups and downs of life in the arts. Flights of fancy, bitter grumblings, pep talks, self-doubt, inspiration, procrastination, and more are all captured with a wry and relatable sense of humor.
Capturing the moments that remind us why we take why we take art seriously - but not too seriously - Lauren Purje's comics are a perfect handbook for anyone living the creative life.
With a BFA, solo exhibitions, and working at a New York gallery, Lauren Purje has spent plenty of time in the art world... Consider this her cry for help.
"Lauren Purje may not know much about art, but she knows... actually, she knows a lot about art. And art school, and the art world, and artists. She shows that it’s okay to laugh at art, and more importantly, if you’re an artist, to laugh at yourself."
— Jeffrey Brown, author of Clumsy and Darth Vader and Son
