A Double Life

1. What do you do?

I’m an artist. I draw and paint pictures for magazines, books, CD covers – all kinds of things.

2. Where do you work?

I work at home. I have a room just for working in.

3. How many hours do you work?

I normally work about eight hours a day, from 9.30 to 5.30. Sometimes I work again in the evenings or at weekends, when I’m in a hurry to finish a picture.

4. Do you earn a lot of money?

It depends. I earn from about £250 to £3,000 for a picture. Sometimes I have a lot of work but sometimes I don’t. That’s a problem. And I don’t have paid holidays.

5. Do you like your job? Why?

Yes. I love it, because every day is different, and I like using my imagination.

6. What don’t you like about your job?

It’s stressful when I need to work fast and the ideas don’t come. And sometimes it’s lonely when you don’t work with other people.

7. How do you relax after work?

I play the bass in a band called International Airport. We play at weekends in pubs and clubs.
