This review is from: Illustration 101 - Streetwise Tactics for Surviving as a Freelance Illustrator (Paperback)
I got this book from Amazon nearly 9 years ago as an e-book.
9 years on, I am represented by a major agency and have been full time freelancing for the last 7 years. My clients include Virgin, Channel 5, Penguin, Tesco, FHM ... I also now teach Graphic Design and Illustration at a further education college.
This book was instrumental in kick starting my career. I studied Fine Art at uni, so was completely new to the industry, but the practical advice contained here filled me in. Even the nugget of cold calling art editors and getting past the receptionist is contained!
I also refer back to my (now dated) copy as I teach a business start up class.
The choice is simple... buy it!
