Honest, Informative Insider's Look at Earning a Living Selling Your Art,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: I Just Like to Make Things: Learn the Secrets to Making Money while Staying Passionate about your Art and Craft (Spiral-bound)
I Just Like To Make Things is a warm, encouraging, honest, and exceptionally informative book for artists and designers and those aspiring to earn a living through selling their artwork.
Lilla Rogers has an incredible reputation. She's been one of the top illustration agents in the US for decades. In this book she tells you exactly what you need to do to make your artwork sell. Everything is detailed here, from figuring out what you really love (and what makes you anxious) to developing a marketable portfolio to approaching art directors, and all in Lilla's loving, "you can do this!" voice. In addition, the book is illustrated by Lilla and her artists making the pages themselves inspiring to look at.
I highly recommend this book. It's down to earth and it's real. You're going to love it and find yourself recommending it to art-making friends.
