Ben Behunin gets a lot of questions about his job and career. As it turns out, most folks don’t usually know any potters or writers who’ve built a successful career. But after 22 years as a full-time artist and writer, the most common question has always been, “Where do you get all your ideas?”
Surprisingly, Ben has discovered that many people seem to believe that encountering a creative idea is as rare as encountering a Sasquatch—providing him with a playful metaphor for chasing down those elusive, creative muses.
How to Seduce a Sasquatch is a two-part book. On one side you’ll find 101 Surefire Ways to Jumpstart Your Creativity. These include many of Ben’s best ideas, methods and techniques for developing imagination and creativity. On the flip side you’ll find the theories behind the practice of creative seduction. Filled with pictures, inspiration, and examples, this Field guide will leave you psyched to strap on your hiking boots and head off on a creative expedition of your own.
Loaded with generous photography by the internationally renowned photographer, Harry von Lederhösen, How to Seduce a Sasquatch is appropriate for readers of all ages.
“Okay, so maybe I need to read more, but this was one of the best books I’ve read in the last decade. It made me think about how I spend my time and all the fear I’ve allowed to hold me back from all that I want to be. It made me want to change my habits and chase down my own doggone Sasquatch. ”-Josephine Smithson

“This book…got me off the couch for the first time in months. I realized that with all the time I spent watching TV in the last year alone I could’ve written a book, learned how to play the piano, and knitted a few dozen sweaters. Now I don’t even want to turn the TV on. I’ve discovered there’s a whole new world outside! Who knew? -Jack B, age 17.
