If you have heard the old refrain that artists make no money and you're beginning to fear that this may become true for you too, then this book is for you. Daniel Grant has created a comprehensive guide on how to make not just a living, but a strong business from your art. With information on creating a competitive website, selling your art and handling the post-exhibition blues, Daniel provides advice that every artist needs to sketch into their plans. And in case one may be skeptical of his word he provides quotes from several successful artist to back his claims. The worst result one could get from this book is finding that they spent a day reading about things they already know. But with this wealth of knowledge, that is unlikely (unless you have read the book already).
