Default Steal Like an Artist

I present you with some excerpts from Austin Kleon's new book, ""How to Steal Like an Artist". Don't we all "steal" ideas, inspiration, techniques wherever we can find them?

Whether you think of yourself as an artist or not, it's hard for me to see haunters as anything else. The designing and construction of props seems as artistic a pursuit as sculpting. Even those who don't build anything design their show as carefully as any producer. Scare acting is a craft as much as any other acting. Creating makeup effects and costuming is clearly an artistic pursuit.

Whatever your taste and passion, I hope you enjoy these!


Check out his website!

Love to hear your thoughts on the Art of Haunting!

I know from working with threater folks that the successful ones definitely bring that "willingness to look stupid" to their art It's part of letting go of what you are to become the role.

I have come alive again since I re-started creating things & being artistic. Save by my haunt, so to speak.
