In the beginning the information is a bit dry to swallow and to set up, but that is simply because I have more fun in creating than doing business. That said, getting more and more engaged with the mindset Alex provides, it's getting more and more fun to connect to great people who are willing to pay for your design services as clients. The 5th star could be a more fresh and energizing design for the layout. It's a bit hard to read it smoothly and get all the information in your head. It would be nice to have some infographics to get across the information in a more visual way. Illustrators think visually after all.
This guide is very helpful once you know your identity as a creative and clearly know what you want to do and with whom you want to work with or for. Every illustrator should read this guide and implement these basics into their business as a daily habit. Thanks Alex!
As a freelancer of several years who has recently been gravitating from one field to another, this useful book has reminded me of what needs to be done and it equiped me with tools to meet my targets, some so obvious and efficient I had never thought of them before. Best of all; although I've just begun applying a few new tricks learnt from Alex, they actually work and are beginning to produce results. Splendid!
The books comes with an annexed resources booklet, a bible you will definitely want to look through time and time again (I sure did!)
If you are looking for down to earth, no-bullsh*t advice on how to get illustration clients, this is it. Look no further. Thanks Alex!
As far as I'm aware, this latest ebook confronts the common concerns of today's illustration community like none other. Alex lays out a concise system for establishing your work within a crowded global industry.
I sincerely believe that any hard-working artists can take their careers to the next level by utilizing this wellspring of practical knowledge.
It feels like a self-published cheapie. Physically slight and insubstantial.
Good intelligence but, unfortunately has the feel an overpriced quickie.
