I have been reading and listening recently to this Unconventional Guide from Chris Guillebeau, ART + MONEY. It is a great information product for those who are interested in making visual art a career or as a start-up side business. It includes interviews of a diverse group of artist's from all over the world to talk with them about marketing their art work (the artistic dirty word!) and their journey of finding an audience for their work as well as making art work that is authentic for them.
Some of the artists included are illustrators, jewelry artists, travel writers and painters. It has been inspiring and helpful to me to listen to the interviews and to have the reference of the e-book as a compilation of resources for visual artists to utilize. Sometimes it is nice to feel like you are not alone and that it is possible to make your art your career if you so desire; along with the hard work to back it up!
Hope this is a helpful resource for you!
Let me know if there are any other resources you are needing or looking for that you are having trouble finding!
Keep nurturing your art!

"If preparing to work with Court you should know that you will be challenged to be your best self and you will be given tools for how to do so.
You may also find yourself realizing dreams and vocations that may have been easier in the short term to keep hidden, but overall will allow you to embrace this creative part of yourself and live more fully." -Faith Josephs
