Publisher's Summary

The Rogue Artist's Survival Guide is an undisciplined, story-centric, offbeat, and honest approach to demystify what it takes to become a full-time artist. It is designed to help you navigate the clusterfudge that is the art world. A decade ago, there was no guidebook to lead me away from the overcrowded and overly pompous art market toward success. This audiobook is all about blazing your own trail and creating your career as an artist, instead of waiting around to be discovered.

BIG THUMBS UP!!

Well, I am an artist! This guy speaks the truth, is hilarious, and gave me a great perspective on the meaning of persistence. REAL persistence. I now have hope! I feel like I made a friend and am no longer trying to go it alone, explaining to everyone what I am trying to do and justifying what I am making up. Thank you (said with awe, and say hi to Klee for me who is obviously the bomb too!)!! I can't wait for your next book!

Raw and powerful

Rafi this was so funny and raw and it was like the realist art book I have ever had read/listened to in my life most books are full of fluff and imaginary fairytales but you gave us the real and raw realities of the art world and things we can expect and plan for! Thanks 💖

Must Read for Artists

This book is not so much about what to DO on your journey as an artist, but rather how to THINK, which is much more powerful. Rafi did an amazing job putting together a wealth of insights on the mindset that allows artists to break free from the traditional system and claim their power as individuals. This is a must read for any artist who is struggling to get past the fear and the mental barriers that keep them stuck. Rafi provides very real and practical advice on the inner game of becoming an artist by sharing his story and his experiences about how he built a career that defied tradition. However, it is not your typical, “Here’s my proven method on how to be successful so you can too!” It’s an honest, no BS framework for approaching your artistic career with honesty, heart, confidence, joy, and self expression. If you want to be an artist, then stop reading this review and start reading the book already!

A Different Take on How To Be an Artist

There were so many times listening to this book when I wanted to stop the recording and send Rafi an email to comment my agreement with what he was saying. Being an artist is both the most wonderful and the most difficult career... but it isn't made better by all the baloney going on in our heads or in those who would discourage or take advantage of us.
Rafi helps dispell the baloney.

Honest, thought provoking and enjoyable

Raffi put a lot of love into this book- as he strives to do in all things. There's a lot of wisdom to be found here and so much for my mind to process. I'll be returning to this book again and again. So glad he decided to push himself out of his comfort zone to make this book a reality. Now it's my turn 😊

More than delivered

Excellent with raw honesty and to the point information about what it takes to be an artist. Exposes a lot of the BS in the art world and how to deal with it. This is about a way of life and how to enjoy being an artist with all its difficulties. Bravo! I will listen to this many more time. I look forward to any more books by Rafi.

A heartfelt and honest guide

I really enjoyed the authors approach to addressing the many things we all face. The book is full of insights about challenging our beliefs and conquering fears. A must read for anyone, creative or not, who is interested in doing the thing that they always wanted to do but were too afraid to. This book shined a light on some of the excuses I've made that has held me back from being the most awesome version of myself. A great read I highly recommend.

No frills, real and honest.

An account of what it takes to be an artist from someone who has lived it, made mistakes, learnt as they went along - a good guide to navigating doubt, confusion and negative self talk as an artist.

Not just for artists!

Very inspirational for anyone. Not just for artists. A must read or listen for anyone that need a loving "reminder-kick-in-the-butt nudge to get moving forward. Going to listen more than once. It brings a varm blanket over my sometimes very wounded inner child and still gets me moving when needed. Thank you Rafi (and klee) to bringing this book to us!
