As knowledgeable freelancer, how essential is it to spend money on software program?
It isn’t an funding, it’s a needed enterprise expense. Something that helps me cut back time spent on doing duties, I’ll fortunately pay for. For instance, I pay for CoSchedule, which is a social media scheduling & advertising calendar software program. INR 18,000 for the 12 months. It’s lower than a month-to-month wage I must pay to rent somebody on my staff to try this. I used to assume, “I’m environment friendly, I can schedule manually, why waste all that cash?” Now I believe, “Why waste time, it’s solely about Rs. 1,000 per 30 days!”

How do you overcome a inventive 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 inventive block.
I suppose 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 rapidly. It’s higher to experiment, fail rapidly & transfer on to the subsequent factor, than hesitate to do one thing, take without end to do it & then not give up 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 really DEAD useless, then I gained’t get to do shit.
Artistic block is simply concern of failure IMO. Make 10 work, all 10 are trash. Make 10 extra, these are additionally trash. Make 10 extra and possibly 1 is respectable. Who’re you to determine? Make, publish. Your job is to create the artwork.
What’s the distinction between small enterprise and massive enterprise in keeping with you?
Usually, I’d go by dimension : variety of staff, income, and so forth.

Which varnish is appropriate to make use of for work completed on MDF with paint pens?
Will depend on the kind of paint within the paint pen. Most varnishes have solvents in them, so if you happen to apply the varnish instantly onto an utility of an acrylic Posca pen for instance, the paint will dissolve and transfer round. You could create a separation layer first. Attempt a spray-on fixative. Or a sprig varnish. Then apply the stronger solvent-based varnish. Totally different for oil paints I think about – I don’t paint numerous 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 if you’re completed varnishing, test 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 couple of years, I’ve thought of doing it in a extra structured approach and I’ve noticed that numerous 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 data 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 worthwhile actual property. Somebody visiting my Instagram profile for the primary time, sees my profile picture, my statistics, my bio after which a complete row of Story Highlights and THEN they get to the true motive they’re more likely 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 and reply about 5-10 questions. I will even doc these questions on my weblog, just like at present’s weblog publish.
