Is it still the weekend? I’m not quite sure – some are working, some are not, I can go to the bank but not the library, you get the picture. Plus I was away for two days on my staff-retreat-of-one – which I highly recommend to small biz owners and entrepreneurs out there. More on that in another post.
So in honour of maybe you have time to read at home, and maybe you have time to read at work since you’re still in a chocolate coma, here we go – from last week and now let’s flip through the bookmarks for things to share
What a Wonderful Thing to Come Back To the billboard tax is happening!
I liked this article, made me do some thinking: Emerging artist? Are you kidding yourself?The first section itself was cause for pause:
This is scary. Imagine. You’re anaesthetised on the operating table, on the cusp of unconsciousness, when in walks all scrubbed up, an emerging surgeon. Your last thought before you slip into a deep, dark sleep is “but … but … wait …”
Absurd the thought of an emerging anybody. There’s none of this wait-and-see tease to it. You are or you ain’t. To see how silly the concept is, take the word “emerging” and follow it with a job of your choice. Asinine in anyone else, but perfectly acceptable if you are an artist apparently.
Some food for thought as to how young you have to be to be emerging, how old you shouldn’t be. I remember a client of mine years ago saying, “make them stop emerging, I’m not done yet!”
How long does one get to emerge for? What defines “mid career”? When are you a “senior artist”?
Would love your thoughts on this one.
