As an expert freelancer, how necessary is it to put money into software program?
It isn’t an funding, it’s a obligatory enterprise expense. Something that helps me scale back time spent on doing duties, I’ll fortunately pay for. For instance, I pay for CoSchedule, which is a social media scheduling & advertising and marketing calendar software program. INR 18,000 for the yr. It’s lower than a month-to-month wage I must pay to rent somebody on my group to do this. I used to suppose, “I’m environment friendly, I can schedule manually, why waste all that cash?” Now I feel, “Why waste time, it’s solely about Rs. 1,000 per 30 days!”
Equally Adobe Artistic Cloud subscription : I can edit photographs, movies, create illustrations, create bill template & e-books, illustrate logos and many others. multi function linked suite of software program. Sure, some free options exist – that one has to guage & see what works.
Would you need somebody to steal your work and become profitable off of it? That’s what we do after we pirate software program. Observe what you preach.
How do you overcome a artistic block?
My drawback is normally the alternative : I’ve so many concepts & I can by no means discover the time to execute all of them. I can’t recall if I’ve ever had a artistic block.
I assume the important thing for me is that I’ve completely no qualms about failing – even publicly. I imply, I’m a sore loser however I recover from it shortly. It’s higher to experiment, fail shortly & transfer on to the subsequent factor, than hesitate to do one thing, take ceaselessly to do it & then not stop even when you possibly can see that it’s not working. I’ve this urge to “get it on the market” aka “publish” as a result of I’m dying each day – actually. And if I’m truly DEAD useless, then I received’t get to do shit.
Artistic block is simply worry of failure IMO. Make 10 work, all 10 are trash. Make 10 extra, these are additionally trash. Make 10 extra and perhaps 1 is first rate. Who’re you to determine? Make, publish. Your job is to create the artwork.
What’s the distinction between small enterprise and large enterprise in keeping with you?
Usually, I’d go by measurement : variety of staff, income, and many others.
To be clear, these definitions are usually not conceptual or based mostly on what I feel, personally or professionally. I’m going by the widely accepted official / authorized definitions. Totally different international locations have totally different definitions based mostly on variety of staff and annual income for various industries ( totally different for manufacturing vs. providers vs. one thing else ). For extra particular particulars & definitions of the Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises Improvement ( MSMED ) Act handed by the Indian Govt. https://msme.gov.in/faq
Which varnish is appropriate to make use of for work accomplished on MDF with paint pens?
Is dependent upon the kind of paint within the paint pen. Most varnishes have solvents in them, so for those who apply the varnish immediately onto an software of an acrylic Posca pen for instance, the paint will dissolve and transfer round. It’s good to create a separation layer first. Attempt a spray-on fixative. Or a twig varnish. Then apply the stronger solvent-based varnish. Totally different for oil paints I think about – I don’t paint plenty of oil.
What’s the trick to coating varnish evenly over a floor with out it dripping to the again?
If it drips, wipe it off. Simply once you’re accomplished varnishing, verify the underside of the horizontal flat canvas board / body, to see any hanging drips. I wipe off with my fingers, which I wipe on my paint denims 😉 Earlier than beginning, canvas should be parallel to the ground / floor and separated from the ground. This prevents drips from adhering the canvas to the floor.
Once more, experiment!

What’s #NAINAMAMA? : “Naina’s Monday Ask Me Something”.
Having used the “Ask Me Something” questions field on Instagram Tales over the previous few years, I’ve thought of doing it in a extra structured approach and I’ve noticed that plenty of the questions are repeated. The repetitiveness is comprehensible due to the character of Instagram. Tales are gone after 24 hours and never everybody will get to see them. This isn’t solely a waste of my time, but additionally a lack of info that somebody would possibly discover helpful. I’ve, certainly, thought of saving these tales as “Story Highlights” on my Instagram profile however I don’t like how they eat up priceless actual property. Somebody visiting my Instagram profile for the primary time, sees my profile photograph, my statistics, my bio after which a whole row of Story Highlights and THEN they get to the true motive they’re prone to interact with me : my work. With out the Story Highlights, they’ll see six posts and 1/fifth of one other three. With the Story Highlights they’ll solely see the primary three posts of their entirety, which, to me, is unacceptable.
Each Monday, I’ll put up the Q&A field on my Instagram Tales and try to reply about 5-10 questions. I can even doc these questions on my weblog, just like right this moment’s weblog submit.
