Publisher's Summary

“I believe in you. You have a great destiny. You are meant for great things. And it’s possible to live a wonderful, extraordinary life.” That is the promise offered by best-selling author and illustrator James A. Owen in this remarkable and inspirational meditation.
In Drawing Out the Dragons, James shares personal stories and the deep truths he learned while navigating past obstacles and adversity toward a life of lasting belief and joy. We all have a grand destiny, but sometimes we feel we lack the power to achieve it. But we always have the power to choose. “Every drawing, every life, is nothing but a series of choices and actions. Make your lines. Make your choices. . . . What you create from there is entirely up to you.” Drawing Out the Dragons has the power to uplift, inspire, and change your life. Motivational and inspirational, this book is ideal for graduates, dreamers, or anyone making life’s most important choices.

You Cannot Leave Your Creativity Behind

This is the best book I've read on how to live one's creative dream out in life. It is heartwarming, clear, and will motivate you to help yourself and others in fulfilling your creative dream. Serendipity, or the magical extra thing that pops up when we are devoted to our creative tasks with full commitment, is a magical extra you will encounter as you go to meet your dragons. I would encourage you to step up and ask for what you want, and then listen to the answer on how to get it, as James A. Owen will tell you simply how to both draw a line, and decide where you put it, and similarly in your life, to decide what you must do the most and then do it. Failure to do what we are gifted to do is a great loss. Go for it.

inspiring and strengthening.

It's great to hear such inspirational words from some who was in the mud, but didn't have the training and experience that most self help authors have. You are a guy who figured it out the hard way not a train psychologist that has real life experience to draw from. You make me believe anyone can do it. Thanx for this and all you other work too.
