        Starred review from November 15, 2014

        Nearly everything an artist, aspiring artist, or designer needs to know to earn a living through making art is contained here. Rather than teaching specific drawing or painting techniques, Congdon (Whatever You Are, Be a Good One) describes how to have a successful business practice in support of one's craft. Chapters address the ways money can be made, including illustration, licensing, sales of original art and of prints, and teaching. Advice on a host of business and professional concerns not usually discussed in art schools is dispensed in an encouraging voice. Interviews with working artists of various backgrounds appear throughout. Most important, Congdon discards the myth of the "starving artist," replacing this tired notion with that of the thriving, successful creative person who is able to do what they love and get paid to do it. VERDICT A useful resource for young adults, emerging artists, and creative people of all ages who seek a career change.
