Far too often artists find themselves having to compromise their art and their life because they were not taught accurate up-to-date methods for dealing with business situations. Because of this lack of preparedness artists miss out on valuable opportunities, financial rewards, and access to receptive audiences. This book aims to help all artists everywhere avoid these pitfalls and get on the track to success on their own terms. Whether you are a gallery- bound artist, a public artist, an emerging artist, a hobbyist, a crafts-person, a student, or a seasoned artist in need of a tune up, this manual is meant for you. This comprehensive book is informed by decades of experience and years of research into how to perform as a professional artist in the 21st century art world (or worlds). This book is filled with easy-to-follow instructions that will help you do everything -- archive your work, start a mailing list, write a grant, and everything else you can think of. This straightforward book even addresses topics you may not think you need to know about now, but you sure will later! Consider this a handbook for all your artistic endeavors. This book is written and designed to empower you to take your future into your own hands.

great book

Excellent resource for all creative makers.


Great book, not just for school but for life!!!!

A great practical guide for the not practical career of being an artist!

Top of the wozza!!! Comprehensive and again brilliant

Arrived within estimated delivery dates. This book was highly recommended by my art professor. All pros, no cons.

Sorry to say, but I bought this book looking for some help and advice about HOW TO get your s*** together. Where to look and so fourth. But seriously, This book is a simple text book, with a VERy general tone. So general that it's completely UNHELPFUL. MOST of the book is filled with sample sheets, like: "use this page to write down ten goals for yourself" "Use this page to make a list of the organizations you can write to" IT is literally a book that is a fancy organizer for college kids with absolutely NO REAL HELP or even suggestions. DO NOT WASTE your time with this. No joke, there are SPELLING TYPOS on the VERY first page!!!

I don't recommend purchasing the Kindle version of this book.
