As told in this article on Muddy Colors, artists Lauren Panepinto and Marc Sheff are putting together a book for freelance artists called Make Art Work – in their own words: “a guide that gives artists the most specific information in the simplest language possible”. The two held an Art Business Bootcamp at Spectrum Live and some pretty valuable info came out of that, as these two one-sheets will tell.
“There’s not one absolute rule that works for everyone, but these one sheets present a good place to start, and a general consensus on a lot of the questions that we Art Directors hear repeated from con, to con, to panel, to email, etc.”
I agree completely! And hereby present you with the two PDF’s for your convenience:
You can learn more about the book here and sign up to the newsletter at http://www.drawnanddrafted.com/ and stay in the loop about their upcoming Kickstarter campaign for the book.

Thanks for this! I have a question for you regarding it: do you have a suggestion for the best “art communities+portfolio sites” are for comics? Is there that much of a difference in your opinion? To be honest, I’m so internet dumb the only one I’ve heard of is DeviantArt.
Palle Schmidt says
Hey Michael, believe it or not: I’m as internet-dumb as you in this regard! But it’s a good question, maybe one for Drawn & Drafted?
Anyway, I thought they did a great job of simplifying and passing on this information, so I thought I’d share.
This is addressed in short in our PDF, but feel free to email us at email@example.com for more!
