Friends, remember way back when (almost a year ago, eee gads!) I said I was writing a book (and it was kicking me in the ass)? Well, I finally get to talk about it!
So it is with great excitement and pleasure that I announce my upcoming book, published Chronicle Books, which comes out in August. Art Inc is a business book for new & emerging artists, chock full of tips on organizing, launching and promoting your career and interviews with successful working artists & others in the industry. The art and illustration worlds can feel mysterious and foreboding when you are just starting out, and I’ve attempted to break them down into understandable elements — how they work and what you can do to increase the chances to breaking into whichever of them you choose.
The book is part of the already well-known and successful “Inc” series by Chronicle, and is edited by the amazing Meg Mateo Ilasco (who founded the series). My friend Jonathan Fields has written an incredible foreword and there are interviews with people like Esther Pearl Watson, Paula Scher, Jessica Silverman, Susie Gharemani, Dolan Geiman, Claire Desjardins and many others. The gorgeous illustrations are by Karolin Schnoor.
You can pre-order the book here or wait till it hits shelves later this summer.
Happy Friday, friends! Have a great weekend.
