The question is, do I know what I believe about myself, the world, and other people? And do I know why?
This book is about taking these fundamental questions of consciousness, tossing them into the air and accepting our unique responsibility to embark on the never-ending excursion toward ourselves.
It is about the fact that YOU are an artist, that YOUR art is required by the rest of us, and that realising it can start with a very simple question.
the manifesto inspired by a toddler: Interpreted by an adult.
...Discover your art. Be the person you were made to be.
“Mary Eddy once said: "Lulled by stupefying illusions, the World is asleep in the cradle of infancy, dreaming away the hours." This book is about waking up. It's not for the feint at heart. This is not for those who are content. This is for the caffeinated believers in a better world. Mort offers a different way to see art and consciousness as two collaborators. That one enacts the other. This book is worth the purchase. If you believe in change, then use it to buy this book!!”

“This book is a challenge. From the very first paragraph, Andy Mort challenges his readers to question why they do what they do and why it matters. His thoughts are poignant, simple, and powerful, jolting readers out of mundane, status quo reasoning and provoking them to change their worldview by embracing their passion. Readers: This book will be your most valuable tool in discovering and living out the artist within.”
