“There’s a very blurry line between making art and working when your art is your life and your passion is your art and your art becomes your business and your business is work… it’s a tricky cycle.” ~Andrea Klunder
Self-promotion & Play like Oil & Water? Maybe not…
When I was a kid, the other kids on the block would get frustrated because rather than just riding bikes together, I always wanted to creates some structure and do things like make them play traffic cop.
Not a lot has changed, in that even as an adult, I have a tendency to turn my creative passions into hard work.
But what happens when forces in your life, your community, your clients, and even your tarot cards conspire to get you out of your rut and just play?
“At first I was like, “ugh, I have so much work to do this weekend, I don’t have time to screw around in the forest preserve, shooting slow motion video for what purpose I have no idea.”” ~Andrea Klunder
