JOIN THE MEETUP!
My wife Aisha and I have been producing art exhibits (Mano A Mano Art Shows) for years in Atlanta and we were in the planning phase of putting together workshops to answer all the questions we get from artists on a regular basis; a workshop for artists where we can share some tips on becoming a successful artist.
Our first step was to catalog the art stories of some of Atlanta's Great Artists giving their advice to up and coming artists. We have filmed James Eugene, Fahamu Pecou, Neal Hamilton, Jovanny Cruz, Jason Thomas, Monica Singer, Gerzon Rodriguez, Justin Anderson, Andre Moore, Jody Harris, Miles Davis and Tela Hubbard and more.
A friend and great Atlanta Artist, Swade (@mrwade1966) was busy involved with artists in his hometown of Toledo and they had an artist get together called Attack of the Black Book.
One day, while I was offering free advice to an up-and-coming artist, another great Atlanta Artist, FlavaDave (@artstarrep) offered to help do a workshop to touch on some business subjects that some artists need to hear.
I invited artists Jason Thomas, Swade and FlavaDave to an early BrainStorm Session and it didn't take long to realize we were all going to collaborate on this idea. We are all involved for the love of art.
Through some of my networking connections with the technology industry I was able to secure a spot at Hypepotamus (@hypepotamus) at GA Tech to hold our workshops. The Black Book Conversations were born.
The Black Book
The Black Book Conversations is a series of Artist workshops focused on Artist career development where we will share tools and tips to get an art career off the ground and running
