There are many of us artists out there who strive for excellence in our own work; we are always pushing to the next level and trying to better ourselves through our craft. However, it is not just about working on our trade but also becomes about marketing ourselves to the community; more importantly its about getting our art out there. Well how does one do that? Most artists are introverted and just wait in the shadows to be discovered. The reality is this will not work. I have been marketing my own work for years now but even I could use a little advice now and then. Well I am here to tell you about a new ebook titled ""Fuel for Art" by Gino Orlandi. This ebook is filled with vital knowledge to help market yourself as an artist.

I am constantly asked how did I learn to market myself, how did I start discovering my path in the art commodity market,so on and so forth. Well, Fuel For Art is the tool you need. This ebook will surely help get you on your way. I know it has only given me even more insight into marketing my own craft to society.

    Richard Morris

    A good friend of mine is going to be teaching a workshop in the near future..and let me tell you this; he is not only a good friend of mine but a great teacher. I took lessons from him for almost a year (on and off) and the techniques he taught me about lighting and draftsmanship put my craft into a whole new category. I highly recommend this workshop with Richard Morris. Its one thing to be a good artist, its another thing altogether to be a great teacher who cares about his students work; that is what Richard Morris is, an artist from the upper echelon who teaches passionately and relays his knowledge to each and every student. I am honest when I say that Richard is one of the best teachers I have ever had the pleasure of taken classes from.
