Item Description...
At last! Here is true practical help for budding freelance illustrators. This book helps you avoid the pitfalls that can ruin a career, with advice on crucial first impressions, how to create a portfolio and approach clients, how to negotiate contracts, and how to handle, deliver, and bill the first job. It discusses how to set up a studio, maintain a steady flow of work, and manage time and money. In addition, it provides information on successful self-promotion, self-publishing, and the pros and cons of agents.

Packed with useful tips gleaned from the author's own career and his work as an agent handling major artists in the US and UK, the book includes interviews with nine big-name illustrators. The reader benefits from their experience of starting out; what they learned during the metamorphosis from student to professional; what their expectations and experiences have been. In addition, art directors and commissioners describe the ways they like to be approached and the ways they really dislike.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Every Young Illustrator's Bible  Oct 6, 2008
I teach illustration in an art college, and this is a book I recommend to all my students.
Illustrators know they are artists, but often tend to forget that they are small business owners as well. Talent alone won't bring them illustration income.
Until this book was published, I used to recommend How To Be a Graphic Designer Without Losing Your Soul, which is still a wonderful book to read for aspiring illustrators, however I am excited that a book specifically written for Illustrators in this topic is finally here. Thank you Darrel.
very helpful book  Sep 18, 2008
Very helpful in giving insight into the general tone and practice of this industry. Well written and full of practical advice, with plenty of personal stories from the author and interviewees. Inspiring/motivating.
Good book  Jun 19, 2008
Great section on invoicing with customers. There is also good information regarding an online portfolio.
