One of the sports writers at the local paper lives in my neighborhood and, because this is Utah County we’re talking about, attends the same church I do. He asked if he could interview me for their annual “Progress Edition,” and I agreed.
All told it’s a nice little article. A couple of the factoids are a little confusing, or inaccurate, but that’s the newspaper business.
I know that at least one person read it. A real-estate agent here in Utah County emailed me and said that he graduated a couple of years ago in graphic arts, and could I please tell him what was meant by “corporate clients?” I guess the job market for artists was kind of soft in 2003.
Heh. Who am I kidding? This job market will ALWAYS be soft. What my college professors said about musicians probably applies to the visual arts too: “Musicians who have a Plan B end up going with Plan B.” In my case, Novell for ten years. In this guy’s case, real estate.
