For the last couple of weeks I have been getting a project ready for submission and preparing for a gallery show. I found myself pulled in so many directions to get this all done, that all I could think of was the number of hats we must wear in this business. Here are some of them.
Writer, editor, copywriter, typist, proofreader, word processor, artist, graphic designer, art director, book designer, desktop publisher, paste-up artist, printer, bookbinder, mail room specialist, creative liaison, printing quality control specialist, mat cutter, framer, packager, deliveryman (women).
What I accomplished:
Framed artwork delivered to gallery show.
Picture book package submitted to publisher. (Includes manuscript, dummy book, and art samples.)
I always find it so amazing when I mail one of these packages. They seem so small! How could all that time and work really fit into a 9x12 envelope?
