At the moment I am fully able to assist in workshops but not lead any as I do not have any public liability insurance. This is easy enough to obtain from a local artists union or at least should be. Probably around the time of my last post I had already sent my application in to become a member of the local artists union fully aware that it would take up to 28 days to process. Anyone familiar with the movie 28 days later will probably know how disastrous things can get i…

Adventures in freelancing.

Mentally I have a far more positive frame of mind but a bank balance that is almost constantly in the negative. I have been trying to keep to a routine of getting up around the same time as my partner, doing a bit of exercise, check emails, scout for jobs on peopleperhour and do some artwork, with a break for some lunch and some household chores (mainly laundry). This has been largely successful up until the last week or so when I have …
