The Reviews

Being a professional artist is financially challenging. That is an intentional understatement.But like any other small business you are essentially a full-time freelancer. There is no salary to fall back on, and you are at the mercy of your commissions and sales - which can be sporadic. It's feast or famine in this world. Managing your money during the peaks and troughs is exhausting, and it's important to plan for the chaos.The Rogue Artist's Money Guide provides and excellent roadmap for you, to help you manage your money in a way that will allow you to continue making art for a living. I've followed Rafi and Klee's YouTube channel for years and they are honest and forthcoming about their own struggles as living examples of professional artists. This book contains a wealth of information for anyone who seriously wants to become a working professional artist.Not only is it a practical reference, it's entertaining and filled with stories from their own experiences. As a professional artist myself, I'm the first to admit that I was terrible about handling my own income. I was used to salaried jobs where many of these issues are nonexistent. Having now switched entirely over to being both a professional artist and helping to run another small business with my family, we've had to learn the hard way about managing income and expenses when you really can't rely on a steady paycheck. This book does a great job walking you through the problem areas and how to build a long-term financial strategy to get your career as an artist running well.I highly recommend this book to anyone considering a career as a professional artist.

Love the down to earth non-stuffiness . Great book

If your looking for run of the mill business advice or regurgitated “art business” advice this is not that book. As refreshing, practical and sincere as Rafi himself, you’ll get real world, no bs tips and know how to chart a course for making and managing money as a creative.

It's not a myth, [before they die] artists CAN make money!Rafi is the one who can teach you that money comes to those who create!

This is my favorite of Rafi's three books on becoming a self-employed artist. This one is the nuts and bolts of "THE MONEY". What to do with it, and how to manage it. Clear and well-written. Most useful!

Easy to read, well written. Very useful information for the aspiring or established artist. Highly recommend.

I liked the way it’s written. It’s easy to read and is helping me develop a clear plan.
