Representing Artists

21 Sep

GS Artists Sept 2019

I went to GS Artists on High Street earlier to a meeting planning to pull together a group of local artists, a union or cooperative to represent our interests. It was a good start, lots of ideas but a lot of work ahead of us because most artists are self-employed and often working in isolation. We’re also prone to exploitation – so much pressutre to work for very little or even nothing! “You’ll get exposure” they say. You can die of exposure. It’s surprising the number of allegedly reputable organisations that try to get artists to work for no pay – or maybe it isn’t so surprising. We live in a society where artists and the arts are so undervalued.

Anyway, I had a scribble. Using ballpoint pen with the continuous line technique.
