This book is intended for young artists who are graduating from college or have recently graduated. It gives a lot of advice with them in mind, but it's a good read even if you are coming into illustration later in life.

Good, solid advice from an industry rock star! Source: I bought this book. The book is a 'how-to' guide aimed at students and people just out of art school.

Each chapter includes one page interview of many renowned illustrators, which gives us more insight and inspiration to move forward in this path.

My favorite piece of advice to new illustrators is Victor Ngai's: "The ones who eventually make it are not necessarily the most talented ones but the most persistent ones. Last but not least, I posted here the content of the book so you can have an overview of what this book is all about the funny thing is that it has the page numbers in the content page but no page is marked with numbers It was really useful for me with a lot of advices, insights and information I didn't know about before.

I also liked the interviews from different illustrators or art directors, it was interesting to know their thoughts. I felt that reading this book has saved me a lot of time and that I have a clear vision now of the illustration as a business. Excellent in depth guide from the perspective of an editorial illustrator, nicely designed pages, informative catalogue of advice.

Biased and pushy though! A must read for budding illustrators though! Jan 12, Katie Rosso rated it liked it. I think this is a great, educational book. This means the rules may be different for US-based folks, and therefore the book is less useful though it does lay out great tips about self-promotion!

Overall worth your time, I think. Jan 08, Kellie Fox rated it liked it. A practical resource for the business side of illustration fees, contracts, negotiating, agency representation, etc. It mostly focuses on editorial illustration, which is not a particular interest of mine.

My uni hasn't taught us much about finance or making contacts, so I figured I'd look up different articles and books that might help me prepare myself. This book covers almost everything I wanted to know about illustration what it doesn't cover I Wow This book covers almost everything I wanted to know about illustration what it doesn't cover I have a different book for that hopefully will fill in the gaps , I'd go so far to call this an essential guide for any freelance illustrator.

It explains different ways of promoting yourself, how to get an agent, what kind of portfolio you should have, fees and rights and lots more. This book also draws distinction between US and UK when it's appropriate, it makes sense since the Heart agency ,the agent agency Darrel Rees represents, has headquarters in both New York and London.
