Stefan Bucher is a designer, illustrator, author, and prolific monster maker. I’m not sure how I first heard about him, perhaps a trade magazine, or a Debbie Millman interview on Design Matters. Nevertheless, this guy is a true inspiration. His Daily Monster got my attention, then I discovered his passion for typography, design, and doing good work. He is such a popular fellow that there is a full documentary available  on Lynda.com. He also is the author of You Deserve a Medal, and designed the whole product line for Dave EggersTime Travel Mart.

As I was catching up on what Stefan has been up to more recently, I discovered a book I hadn’t seen.

344 Questions: The Creative Person’s Do-It-Yourself Guide to Insight, Survival, and Artistic Fulfillment (Voices That Matter)

If anyone has read or seen this new book, please let me know what you think of it.  Looks like a good one. Bucher is also responsible for the Daily Letter on my one of my all time favorite educational television programs—The Electric Company.

But that’s not all—there’s an app for that.

For $1.99 you can purchase Stefan’s Daily Monster Maker app. Does the fun never end?
