Life as a Creative

 

Ben Tallon's eagerly awaited book on the highs and lows of working in the creative industry is just a few days away from its official launch.

We're excited to get our own copy of Champagne and Wax Crayons  -  a guidebook following the ups and downs of a creative career -

"This is the story of Illustrator and art director Ben Tallon’s journey from his childhood hobby of drawing, to a freelance career working with the world’s most glamorous clients in illustration, graphic design, music, film and television. Detailing highs of securing dream client World Wrestling Entertainment and lows of unconventional methods  f paying the tax bill, this humorous, brutally honest documentation of navigating  the art world alone and breaking into new markets introduces the real side of the creative industry and what you need to do to make your way to the top.
The creative industry is built on opinion, ideas and ever-changing trends.  Individuality is everything and how each person responds to adversity, triumph and  disaster especially in the freelance world is impossible to teach or understand.  This original and engaging book contains savvy advice from someone who  has survived the unpredictable and often surreal world of the creative industry."

With many great reviews so far, including editorial and TV art directors and lecturers of Illustration, Ben's book will be an aid to young emerging talent, aswell as a reminder to the established.

Read Ben's interview with Digital Arts about freelancing here. 

You can get the book here.
