On art block
Things to do to get rid of it:
- Make textures/ patterns. 
- Make random, look for incidental shapes and pictures in random blobs or texture/ scribbles. 
- Make a list of ideas with rough stick sketches/ thumbnails, revisit the next day and refine/rework
- Make a list/ rough sketches/thumbnails of things to make for others.
- Practice symmetry/ asymmetry
- Try a different craft/ medium/ content. Even if it turns out poorly, you dont have to show anyone. 
- Study textures and light from life (any medium)
- Browse sites like SaatchiConceptart or layerpaint
- Watch people paint on youtubes, especially stuff you dont normally paint. 
- Watch/ read/ learn about art as a process, 
 - Do some process pieces (where there is no defined outcome and the art is mad

A reference guide on bookbinding types
A reference guide on bookbinding types
When I tell people I'm a bookbinder they often think I make only one type of book; the library kind. That, however, is only one of the many ways an artist can create a book. For me, it's a fun challenge to pick the right binding style to go with the purpose of the book. Whether it is a novel that needs to look really classy or medieval, a sketchbook for a graphic novelist or a paper about connections that lets me show the binding.
