Wake up, kettle on, email catch-up, phone calls, gallery visit, quick lunch, phone tag with framer, more emails, kettle on again… between commissions, exhibitions, events, emails and invoices, it’s a wonder artists have time to create at all!
Time is a valuable resource we have no control of – we can’t make more of it, and it seems there’s never enough to go around. Time is precious and the clock is ticking, but an artist’s got to make a living! The Zealous opportunities page is packed with amazing opportunities for painters, photographers, fashion and UX designers, musicians, performers, and more – don’t worry, we know you’re busy. To make it easier on you, we’ve rounded up a few opportunities that are ending in the next five days and ordered them by urgency. All you need to do is apply! Ride out that Friday Feeling, apply for a few opportunities, and take the weekend easy.
