One of my good artist friends is , Ned Jacob.
I learned how to be a professional, respected non-starving artist from this man.
I learned how operate on my on terms,also to be in charge of my art life.
Ned Jacob once said "If you can draw you can make money."
Ned draws like breathing. He made a living in Denver for years with his wonderful charcoal drawings.
I talked with him by phone recently, he was conducting a drawing and painting workshop at the Scottsdale Artists School.
Ned puts a lot of emphasis on freedom and independence as an artist.He travels
three months of each year, to do what he wants to do. I had to go on record with this.
See him by Google,please.
