While the tips in this article are pretty generic, I will say that working artist are among the hardest working group of people I've ever known.

It takes extreme dedication and an iron will to keep up a full time artistic practice.

If anyone is interested in the working/day to day of artists I suggest the following books:

inside the painter's studio (Joe Fig): https://www.amazon.com/Inside-Artists-Studio-Joe-Fig/dp/1616...

Art&Fear (David Bayle) https://www.amazon.com/Art-Fear-Observations-Rewards-Artmaki...
