Thinking forward to photographs of a newly completed work, I began to run through the various people that work for me in my art business. There are a lot. My practice is very mixed, so in Production there are all kinds of people wandering about - various draughtspeople, several painters with different strengths, and sculptors working in assorted media to list a few. In the workshop there is a carpenter who is expected to be able to make all sorts of things for me, and occasionally even a welder. There is a Marketing Manager, a Business Development Manager, not to mention Production Planning, an IT chap, a small Purchasing department (who are always wittering on about money), and of course the chap in Accounts (between you and me I would absolutely love to be able to outsource accounts and promote the Accountant to Financial Director). There is also a Personnel Development Co-ordinator who has to be able to identify and address staff shortcomings. There is a Copywriter, a Graphic Designer, and once in a while an Exhibitions co-ordinator. I even have someone who designs and maintains the website. Oh yes, and the photographer. I'm bound to have forgotten someone, but they all get taken for granted anyway, to be honest. What's more, they get paid very little, if at all, and I get to swan around all day being creative.

  2. I don't know how I managed to forget those - I'm clearly in need of both :)
