Failed It!: Erik Kessels’ latest book. A guide telling you how to turn failure into your trademark.
We all fail. Maybe not on a large scale, but in one way or another, we have all blundered occasionally. According to the established view, failure is not the intention. In general, it means that you’re in trouble. But what if the errors through which something goes wrong are in fact the first signs of success?
If it were up to Erik Kessels, perfection is the greatest enemy of creativity. Perfection is boring and uninspiring. In this book, he therefore encourages you to embrace errors and even to start looking for them. It is in errors that you will find inspiration for exciting and original work and become aware of the absurdity of everyday life. The book is illustrated with work by various artists who share this view of creativity and have made it their own.
