Make Something Meaningful: Commission Work For The Creative Professional (Hardcover)
Make Something Meaningful helps artists and creative professionals navigate the commission process. It dives into the how tos (how to come up with an idea, how to decide what to charge, how to write a contract) and the what ifs (what if something goes wrong, what if a buyer doesn't like it, what if they don't pay). Readers will learn how to set up a process that allows them to take on the types of work they want, avoid the ones they don't, and have the confidence and wisdom to know the difference.
Creative professionals of all experience levels will benefit from this book. Those new to commission work will learn the process from beginning to end to beginning again. Experienced readers will learn how to streamline their process and customer service to create a well-oiled machine. Those looking to reach a higher professional level will learn to stretch their creative comfort zone and unlock the "big door" markets that can feel exclusive, elusive, and out of reach.
Best of all, they'll make the meaningful work they're called to create.
