Monday – Remembering Memorial Day in the US—no new article will be posted.

Tuesday in General Art Advice – If you’ve ever been commissioned for a work of art, you know that there are a lot of things that can go wrong—like not getting paid on time (or at all!) or simply having a difficult client. On Tuesday I’ll post some guidelines that I use when setting up a commission deal which might work for you too.
