ARTIST DIARY: DECEMBER 2018

Next year I will get into writing a monthly artist diary for my blog. I managed one for October, and a festival diary of sorts for November, and it’s already proved a great exercise in remembering where I’ve been and what I’ve done in a schedule that has little time for rest or reflection. For December I want to avoid the usual end of year review format  so instead I’m stock-taking on all the many roles I have taken on this year as a freelance artist / arts freelancer. So, here we go, this is how the bills got paid (or sometimes not) in 2018, and here’s to the spice of life…
