James Victore is a designer for bold believers, an advocate for creativity, and an artist whose work has been exhibited at New York's Museum of Modern Art. He lectures and teaches regularly around the globe. He lives, loves, and works in Texas.
"Packed with no-nonsense, motivational messages on creative courage
and the human condition, he celebrates authenticity and 'weirdness'
as a tool to be used for success. The book's six chapters -
'Voice', 'Fear', 'Start', 'Action', 'Habits' and 'Purpose' - are
split into further sub-chapters with titles such as 'You, the
reluctant hero' and 'Have a damn opinion'. Each includes a short
passage, drawing insight from psychology, philosophy and lessons
from Victore's design career. Bold statements are re-emphasised in
sketches and image play throughout the book. This book acts as a
great instigator, offering a not-so gentle push to kickstart
creative projects." -- eye magazine

"Designer, illustrator and self-proclaimed professional hellraiser, James Victore delivers a manifesto of sorts in Feck Perfuction: Dangerous Ideas on the Business of Life (Chronicle Books) with 80 bite-sized chapters of suggestions to love yourself and embrace your inner kook. Both rousing and soothing." -- Irish Tatler
