Yesterday advance copies of a Breaking Into Freelance Illustration by Holly DeWolf arrived. This is the last HOW Books title that I worked on before being assigned strictly to Writer’s Digest titles.
The book is a guide for artists, designers and illustrators who are looking to start their own business and I think it makes a great crossover read for anyone who works in a creative field. While it is targeted to artists, it covers a lot of best business practices and advice for self-promotion that apply to any creative business.
The author is very enthusiastic and was a lot of fun to work with. She keeps things light in the book by providing lots of fun examples of art work and inspiring quotes from books, movies, TV shows, and popular culture.
