Artist's are Entrepreneurs Too

My daughter’s boyfriend this summer showed me a book by an artist who made cartoons on the back of business cards. The book, Ignore Everybody by Hugh Macleod, was a fun read, and it caused me to start reading his blog. Yesterday’s blog caught my attention, because it was titled “Artists Are Entrepreneurs and Marketers too.”

Here’s a piece of his post:

Artists– suc­cess­ful ones, any­way– have to create stuff out of thin air, then somehow find a way to sell it at a profit. The Art Purists will be horri­fied to hear this, but yeah, you really do need the mind of entre­pre­neur and a mar­ke­ter to be able to do that.
