With a BFA, solo exhibitions, and work experience at a New York gallery, Lauren Purje has spent plenty of time in the art world...consider this her cry for help.

You Might Be An Artist If...collects several years of her comic strips about the ups and downs of life in the arts. Her wry and relatable sense of humor animates every page, tying together flights of fancy, bitter grumblings, motivational pep-talks, self-doubt,
procrastination, and inspiration.

Capturing the moments that remind us why we take art seriously - but not TOO seriously - Purje's comics are a perfect handbook for anyone living the creative life.
