If you are looking for some solid "how-to's" about making your creativity your daily life, then this is the book for you. That is exactly what I want, and I found a wealth of help in The Empowered Artist.
I really love how Baker emphasizes hard work and perseverance. Find your artistic voice, he says, through experimentation and "prolific output." Create consistently and repeatedly. Schedule your time to write, draw, paint, whatever, and treat it like the important work it is. Figure out your goals, find your fans, connect with your role models, and, above all, produce! I loved this quote from Chuck Close: "Inspiration is for amateurs--the rest of us just show up and get to work."
Surprisingly, this book ended up being a source of encouragement for me, yes, but also a very practical guide for how to grow my craft, my brand, my business. There were many really good marketing tips that I had never thought of before, and Baker's advice has helped me see my future in a different way. I'm feeling encouraged and optimistic, and I'm definitely looking forward to checking out more of Baker's marketing tips.
I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
