Jeffrey Yamaguchi extends an invitation to indulge one's inner artist by committing yourself to one creative project a week for 52 weeks. 52 Projects chronicles the author's artistic journey over the course of one year and how it changed his life-and also offers 52 jumping-off points for the reader's own creative inspiration:

- Frame a picture you've drawn, painted, or photographed-and hang it up in a public environment
- Write the story of why you moved to the city in which you currently live
- Ask your grandparents to tell you their stories-and document them
- Create something while your laundry is washing and drying
- Make the perfect margarita-and drink it
- Send a friend a Chinese take-out menu and chopsticks
- Stay up all night-and make the most of it
