I periodically get young artists reaching out to me, asking about how they can become a professional artist. I remember feeling exactly as lost as many of them certainly feel. I put together this guide in order to have a resource I can provide.
Check it out here
It outlines everything I've done and am doing to further my career, and everything I've seen my successful friends and peers do as well. It's not a definitive guide of what you "have" to do, as there are thousands of paths you can take, every one as valid as the last! But hopefully its a good starting point to building a path to an art career.
Cheers guys and happy holidays!
