After connecting with Gwenn Seemel over Twitter, I've been spending some time on her site and blog. And I'm really loving this woman. This clip is a repost of her video discussing general artist types (I'm still smiling over the academic artist breakdown), but you may want to check out her blog for some practical business advice from someone who's making a living from her practice. I'll include some links in next month's top 10.
