For the past 3 years, Jason Seiler has been working with 12+ guest artists to create a tell-all, no holds bar, everything-you-need-to-know book about how to succeed as a commercial illustrator. It includes both tips on technique and even more importantly, tips on how to run your business.
Currently in its fundraising stage, the Kickstarter Campaign for the book will launch next week. We will post the link when it is posted.
Follow them on their facebook page and website.
But enough from me, here is Jason to tell you more about it:
What can I expect from the book?
