Publisher's Summary

In this practical and lively guide, Whitney Biennial - featured artist and career coach Brainard Carey will teach you about opportunities that you didn’t even know existed!
This book is like a language course that is meant to enhance your ability to communicate your art and creative ideas to the world. In the new millennium, artists must create new models for exhibitions and sales. They must also be aware of new modes of communication, from social networking to the latest mobile phone apps. How we share visual information is radically shifting, and artists can benefit from all of these new tools. In this hyper-competitive world, the latest software and hardware, as it applies to creativity and promotion, is part of a language you must be conversant in. This book works as a course (downloadable syllabus available) and as a companion volume to Carey’s recent book, Making It in the Art World.


Audible Editor Reviews

Today's technology-driven media landscape offers emerging artists an overwhelming array of options to help promote and distribute their work.  Richard Allen's spirited performance of Brainard Carey's illuminating work is an essential listen to anyone interested in taking a DIY approach to showcasing their art.
Rife with real-life examples of artists who have succeeded on their own terms, Allen's warm, engaging voice guides the listener through the roadmap Carey creates for navigating this sprawling and fragmented digital terrain.

Turn your Hobby into a career!

Would you try another book written by Brainard Carey or narrated by Richard Allen?

No, narration was very robotic and the book is aimed at absolute beginners

Would you ever listen to anything by Brainard Carey again?


Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Richard Allen?

Good narration is the key to the success of audio books and this is an example of how not to do it.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment, had I paid for the book I would be asking for my money back.
