If you’re looking for good, honest advice then you should really look no further then the great Woody Guthrie. When it comes to self-improvement then Woody’s your man. Back on the eve of 1942 Guthrie decided to compile a list of the things he hoped to improve on over the next year and by writing it down he created a wonderfully simple guide to living a better life.

We’re big fan’s of Guthrie’s ‘New Years Rulin’s’ here on TFIB and so too is the London based illustrator and printmaker Mat Pringle. Since January 1st Mat’s been taking Guthrie’s rules and creating charming sketches based on them. It really makes the list come to life and I’ve been enjoying getting a new rule everyday throughout the month. You can check out more of these illustrated rules by visiting Mat’s blog. Who knows, you might even learn some good advice!
