Far beyond a mere colouring book, Stop Making Art and Die: Survival Activities for Artists is the first adult activity book that makes it impossible not to succeed and flourish as an artist. Written and illustrated by Gorilla House and Rumble House founder Rich Théroux, the book gets you not only drawing, colouring, and designing, but immerses you into the meaning and wellbeing of art. The brilliantly creative Théroux also relates a story of artists overcoming struggles and obstacles to build an artists’ Bohemia that is destroyed time and again, leaving only masterpieces in its wake.


Stop Making Art and Die is available from UpRoute Bright Books With Bite, an imprint of Durvile Publications Ltd. Price, $24.95 Canada $22.95 USA. ISBN: 978-0-9947352-2-5 | 208 Pages | Size: 8.25 x 10.75 inches
