5 tips to Managing Finances as an Illustrator

Running a business, be it in illustration or anything else, requires a lot of attention to detail – particularly when it comes to the finance side of things.

Often, the hardest part of managing finances is when there simply aren’t enough.  Many of us experience this when we’re starting out.  But it can happen at any time when challenges arise.

This resource is designed for those challenging times. We recognise that these points will be difficult –  and in some instances impossible – to implement. Nevertheless, they are the essential basic building blocks of a successful freelance practise.
