We're excited with the opportunity to connect you with author/illustrator Austin Kleon so we've set up a special coffee Meetup. Austin will give a brief presentation, answer questions from the group and hang out in OPEN MiKE. Here's more:

From the mean streets of SXSW and the screens of TEDx, comes the writer/artist who gives you permission to be creative in whatever work it is you do. Join us for a multimedia presentation from the cartoon journalist, marketeering mind that brought you Newspaper Blackout. Whether you do creative things for a living or for fun, you’ll be inspired.

Steal Like an Artist began with the seeds of a simple 10-point list aimed at some community college students with the premise of "things I wish someone told me when I was starting out." The text and slides made it onto the internet and became a viral sensation, with praise raining down from the likes of Rosanne Cash, Seth Godin, and Chris Anderson. The book features the original text, plus new wisdom, fun and accompanied by Austin's no-nonsense, yet completely charming, sketches.

About the Author A former farmboy from Ohio, Austin Kleon is now a writer, artist, author and speaker obsessed with the art of communicating with pictures and words, together. He is author/artist of Newspaper Blackout and participant in the online 20x200 art project. He lives in Austin, Texas.
