Yesterday, we published a post about artist Lina Victor who believes you don't have to be a starving artist and that it is very possible to have a thriving art career. In fact, we believe she said it much more boldly than we are stating it here.

However, there are some things that can help anyone who is striving for an art career, to find recognition and to gain an audience of adoring fans.
