77 – KEEP GOING BY AUSTIN KLEON BOOK REVIEW

In this one I cover the third and final Playful lil Austin Kleon Art Book called, Keep Going by Austin Kleon. Just like the previous two books, this one’s incredible; So Inspiring, Motivating and Fun. Each book is amazing on it’s own, but put them all together and you have a family of three lil beauties. The bright blue cover of Keep Going is nice and Simple, but very Sexy, just like every single page of the book. If you’ve struggled with staying Motivated, Enjoying the Creative Process, or even Keeping a Balanced Life … this book has tons of Fun, Practical Advice and Exercises on how to keep going. Hope you love this one as much as I do :)
