Small. That way when you need some buddies in the foxhole with you, you'll have them. Big companies are so impersonable, how can you in the few days we have left before the rolling blackouts begin even hope to determine who you should, or should not, allow to load your guns while fighting off the zombies?strider3700 wrote:I'm wondering what everyone's thoughts are as to company size in the future when it comes to stability and peak oil.

Oh yeah!! Not having some terminally brain-dead bean-counter boss is truly a gift.smallpoxgirl wrote:I'm all about self employment. Not having a boss rocks. The hours suck, but it's not so bad when you're working for yourself.

I have many different skills and feel comfortable doing things like carpentry, plumbing, etc. I paint on and off as a hobby. Making a living as a fine or commercial artist is difficult in the best of times, so it's hard for me to offer too many optimistic projections for a future career as an artist. I expect my paying work to go away at some point if/when the economy gets bad enough. If it gets only as bad as during the Depression, some artists may still be able to make a living. My advice is to learn as many practical skills as you can, aside from your craft. If you don't mind me asking, what is your plan for your career in the near future?
At least one other person on the board is a professional artist - Pops. He may have some advice for you.

Unless you intend a teaching career in art I'm not sure a MFA would be of much value.
