Description - Funemployed by Justin Heazlewood
Funemployed goes beyond the hype and press releases to show what it's really like for anyone trying to be an artist in Australia. Hilariously honest, Justin Heazlewood covers it all - from starting out to giving up, running a business to burning out, the trappings of fame to the benefits of failure. As well as tapping into his ten years as the Bedroom Philosopher, Justin Heazlewood gleans wisdom and insight from interviewswith more than 100 fellow artists including Gotye (Wally De Backer), Clare Bowditch, John Safran, Tony Martin, Amanda Palmer,Christos Tsiolkas, Tim Rogers, Adam Elliot and Benjamin Law. Part confessional and part rogue self-help book, Funemployed is a landmark title for anyone interested in the making and enjoying of art in Australia.
