There’s something pretty cool and sexy about the idea of being an artist. In fact, the image of the artist is one of the great motifs that comes up again in… well… in art. Through film, TV, literature, and even just casual conversation and everyday aphorisms and sayings, we all carry an image somewhere in our mind of the creative figure — usually a bit tormented and hungry — working magic onto the canvas, or out of the textiles or clay before them.
No one really dreams of being a mindless and unsatisfied office drone when they’re young, but for various reasons, many of us nonetheless find ourselves falling into jobs that we just can’t stand, an having to put up with the fact that the work we do for five or more days of the week, is ultimately meaningless to us in the grand scheme of things.

We've all been there. The polite customer at the craft fair, the intrigued family friend, a colleague at your part-time job... Your Gran.

Until they don't!
