Art of Business

From time to time I like to remind the readers of this blog (and myself) that what we do as artists is not only fun, but it is business. It's not always the most fun thinking about the business side of things, but certainly important.

I've stumbled upon a really great blog with a lot of useful information. The post dates are creeping up with age, but I still think they are relevant articles. There is everything from taxes, to contracts, to pricing your work, and more.
