Please don’t take my extended absence personally: I barely wrote anything in 2017. Let’s change that this year.
(2019 Edit: So much for that.)
But this post, as the title says, wasn’t planned. It started out as an answer to a Reddit post asking what you should study if you want to go pro, but as I kept writing, I realized it was turning into a blog post.
So here you go: a list, from memory, of what I think an artist with ambition should be reading up on.
