The Business of Art – PLAN



                “It’s not the load that breaks you down; it’s the way you carry it.” -Lena Horne

          Sitting in my office today I had a realization; I can only do so much at one time. This seems to be a simple concept but I see it all the time in the artists that come through our offices. This is usually the result of multiple projects that were started when one project came to a block.
          This can really cut into the production time of a piece because it gets to a point that you have too many projects going on at once and none of them ever seem to get finished. I bring up this point as an effort to keep you focused on what is actually possible in the time you have allotted yourself for the creation of art as opposed to the wishful time. Separating the actual production possibilities can be very difficult but in the end you will be far more productive and feel more accomplished.
          This will also lead to a better sense of the actual cost of your work and help you realize what your goals should be. It is very important to plan not only your future pieces but also to plan financially so you can achieve your creative goals!
