In the marketplace of ideas, there are few vendors as talented and unfailingly generous as Bobby Chiu. It’s enough of an amazing achievement to be able to draw, paint, and operate a business at a skill level that Bobby has achieved, but to also have the gift of articulation and the willingness to share, is the stuff of character. There are a billion reasons to give up and NOT continue a pursuit of passion in a practical world; Bobby is able to cut through the negative and amplify the positive at a volume that drowns out those destructive voices. His arguments and observations are convincing, practical and inspiring. I’m thankful to know Bobby and I’m honored to have learned from him. He’s truly a great artist and an astounding teacher!

“The Perfect Bait” is both an inspirational narrative and a practical
narrative on pursuing a career as a professional artist, and is very
much the sort of book I would have hoped was around when I was
beginning to seek work many years ago. He has included many practical
tips -- such as sketching first thing in the morning, if only for a
few minutes, to wake up the artistic part of yourself -- but the bulk
of it comes down to something I have long believed but not been
articulate enough to say. And that is that hard work and a drive to
stick to the task, either trumps talent, or makes talent better.
Bobby's book is a valuable resource for anyone interested in a career
in commercial art. It's about time.
This book is lean with timeless wisdom not just for artists but for any individual looking to flex their creative force. It does not simply motivate or inspire but to addresses your core as a working creative.
