I Just Like to Make Things
Learn the Secrets to Making Money while Staying Passionate about your Art and Craft
(Quarry Books, 2013)
This is a dazzling, colorful volume of career and personal advice for artists. It’s filled with ideas, playsheets (as opposed to worksheets), case studies, and tools for staying inspired and creative. The pages are grounded in the wisdom and experience gleaned from a long and buzzing career as creative juggernaut Lilla Rogers shares her analysis of leveraging various working styles and ways to keep your art fresh. Artist interviews provide inside details about the best jobs, as well as tips on how to work smart and stay creative. You’ll also find annotated case studies of several successful art jobs, in addition to coloring book pages, hand-drawn charts, and lots of crazy fun.
This book prompted me to take Lilla Rogers’ Make Art That Sells courses, which I also recommend.
