How to be a Working Artist

Nicole Dieke

There’s this huge disconnect between people who want to make art and this belief that you can’t create, produce, and share/distribute art while you have a full-time job.

Unless you have the how-to guide.

In ten minutes, I’ll cover: creativity, constraints, and continuity; timing, hacking, and shipping; money, energy, and balance.

And I’ll do it with a guitar.

About Nicole Dieke:

Every week I sit on my kitchen table and make a new song for the internet.

I perform at comic conventions, Nintendo conventions, nerd conventions, and people’s apartments.

My album is called Infinity Right Now and is available by typing “Infinity Right Now” into Google.
