Artist's Survival Kit

Keri Smith offers a humorous survival kit for artists to help us cope with those days when we find ourselves wondering, "Why the hell did I ever think I wanted to be an artist?"

The kit is made available as a series of 5 downloadable and printable PDF files (she suggests using cardstock) that we can then pull out and consult when having "one of those days" or need to share with an artist friend in need of a "pick me up". For example, the "I QUIT" card gives the following instructions: 1) Go get a newspaper; 2) Read the classified section; 3) Look for jobs that would fulfill you; 4) Circle them; 5) Count the circles.
