This review is from: I Just Like to Make Things: Learn the Secrets to Making Money while Staying Passionate about your Art and Craft (Spiral-bound)
Lilla Roger's book is a wonderful, visually-inspiring read for all creatives wanting to follow their passion and make a living from their art or craft. It showcases the work of some of the best illustrators and artists working today and gives the reader shed loads of insider tips on how to get noticed in the world of art licensing, surface pattern design and manufacturing. I found the book hard to put down, and it has helped kick-start my New Year's creative juices following a few weeks of post-Christmas lethargy. Lilli interviews many art directors working in fabric, magazine, stationery and clothing companies, making you feel like you have gotten the inside scoop on the industry. You learn what inspires these directors, how important it is to be trend-aware, and ways of getting your work in front of key people in your particular field. After reading the book in its entirety today, I have a "to-do list" the length of my arm, a headful of ideas and several pages of wonderful websites to visit. The book is also an invitation to work with Liila which makes her stand out as accessible and visible. I recommend to all creatives everywhere!
