    Thank you for posting this. I can't say it any stronger in that this advice is exactly what I need right now in my life and in regards to where I want my art and myself to finally go. He takes a lot of the ambiguity of this complex and delicate operation known as "Marketing Yourself," especially regarding portfolios.

    This entire article applies to me in every way. Especially the finding a niche thing.

    And it comes just in time as I think I finally found the style I love. Now I just need to perfect it.

    I've been going through a period where I can't totally decide what to do and feelin' a bit lost for some reason. This article totally helped. I'm so re-reading it in the morning and forcing myself to bullet point my own response to each bolded thing he mentioned.

    Especially the niche part. I need to pin that down way better than it currently it is.

    Thanks Bri for sharing!

    This is great, thank you for sharing the article. I think even for someone (like me) who considers art as a hobby and not necessarily a career, it's still valuable and a good read!

    Thanks for that. I consider myself a real jack of all trades and I'm struggling to focus on one thing. I just love everything and always want to experiment. But I haven't found my audience yet!

    Thanks for the article. It doesn't help that I'm super indecisive.

    That's a great article. I've been really working on narrowing down my audience for my webcomic so I can really spread the word to the right people about what I do. Really good to see that I'm going in the right direction with it all. I'll have to pass this article along to a friend of mine who's really struggling with finding and marketing to the right audience for what she does. Thanks for posting this!

    I'm indecisive AND I love to learn new things, so it's super hard for me. I want to do everything: webcomics, concept art, fine art, I can't decide! Since reading this (and lots of other articles), I've started a project to help me focus my art and portfolio in the direction of children's books since that's what I ended up specializing in during college.
