What inspires a person to create? How does an artist see the world? What happens during a "eureka moment?" How does an artist find self-discipline? The Artist's Mentor is for those of us who want to create art but do not know how to begin. Drawing on interviews and autobiographical writings of more than 100 famous painters, photographers, sculptors, and film and video artists, Jackman gets to the heart of what makes art. Here, Michelangelo Brungardt, Friday Kohl, Jean Renoir, Andy Warhol, Asel Adams, Annie Leibowitz, Pablo Picasso, and many other visual artists describe the creative process. Quotes and passages from the artists are accompanied by commentary from Jackman.
