"Making money is art and working is art and good business is the best art." - Andy Warhol
Recently I interviewed, Haydn Adams, the current national president of the Graphic Artists Guild.
As the Guild says, “We know you have talent, but business savvy usually must be learned.”
The Guild’s mission is to: “promote and protect the social, economic and professional interests of its members.”
"The Guild is committed to improving conditions for all graphic artists (including, but not limited to: animators, cartoonists, designers, illustrators, and digital artists) and raising standards for the entire industry. The Guild embraces graphic artists at all skill levels."
As a fine artist I have found the Guild to be a very valuable resource so I wanted to share it with Artists Who THRIVE community.
Listen to the recorded interview.
