10 Books for Professional Artists (and those who want to be!)

Being an artist can be a lonely business. Not only that, even if you were lucky enough to go to art school, it’s likely that they didn’t really teach you about the business side of your art career. That’s why many of us turn to books, blogs, and other artists to try to figure it all out. And that’s also why I’ve put together this collection of 10 books for professional artists, and those who want to be!
