Breaking into Freelance Illustration

The Guide for Artists, Designers and Illustrators

By Holly DeWolf

Format: Paperback

SKU# Z2796

From the Introduction:

"Illustrators are the link between design and fi ne art. We are not designers, nor are we fi ne artists. We work in a commercial industry that provides images for clients in a sort of lending atmosphere. Because we generally do not sell our original work outright, we fall into an odd category: We create images that sell ideas, push boundaries of the imagination, sell products, decorate and compliment text like nothing else. We are in a unique creative zone."

This uniqueness is exactly why this book was written: to address the specific needs of illustrators as they try to make a living with their craft.Breaking into Freelance Illustration provides a step-by-step road-map for illustrators looking to promote themselves and run a creative business.

What HOW Book's Managing Editor, Scott Francis, has to say:

Holly DeWolf’s book is the very first HOW book I had the pleasure of working on—today it’s still one of my favorites. While it specifically targets illustrators, I think any creative freelancer will find this a helpful guide to running a successful creative business.
