This episode, we look at shifting gears and working in more than one artistic discipline. Many young people have talent and interest in a lot of different creative fields. Making a living from creative work often means diversifying your output. But this can also mean doubling your workload, and finding your way in different kinds of business realities. How do you shift gears between these different roles? Does a personal life even fit into the mix?
