Something that I found long ago on LJ and thought all the artists here would find very useful. ;)

Artist and Buyer Guides - How Not to Get Burned.

The Business of Being an Artist.
While the book mostly talks about non-furry artwork and trying to sell art and get recognised, It looks like a lot of stuff mentioned in the Contents might benefit furry artists as well. Might be worth taking a look into at your next trip to the bookstore. ;)

Thanks for posting this! I read the whole LJ entry and it was very helpful. When I get time, I'm going to write up a terms of service.

From time to time, people ask "How do you draw this" and "How do you draw that" topics. I thought I'd take some time out and share some titles of books I've had in my possesion that might help fellow furs out with their artwork. ;) Check your nearest bookstore, library, or Amazon.com for them.
