Book Report: Real Artists Don't Starve

No, this is not specifically CBG related, so feel free to move on.

In addition to my CBG hobby/addiction I have always had a passion for reading. I am finding this book to be quite interesting. Although I have no aspirations to be a 'real artist', I do find that I desire to create interesting roots instruments; many more than I need so I try to sell them. Some friends like them, buy them, or commission me to build for them, so I find myself selling art.

If you like the printed page, check this out. The author uses examples from media, art, music, writing, etc. It is not a formulaic 'how-to' but a way to think about money and art. I would enjoy hearing your thoughts if you pick it up.
