> IMAGE OF THE WEEK: Anuar Patjane's winning entry to the National Geographic Traveller Photo Contest 2015 entitles Whale Whispers - all the winners and runners-up are viewable on their website, plus the images are available to download as wallpapers - how fab!
> THINK PIECE : Aleks Eror on Why we should treat creative work like any other job; "this really isn't a call for sympathy, but rather an attempt to deconstruct the mystification of creative work, because, ultimately, that mystification allows employers in the arts, fashion, media and similar fields to profit at the expense of their workforce"
> CONVERSATION POINT: We came across this interesting discussion point via the e-flux conversations site, Colleen Dilen originally posed the question How does free admission affect museum attendance? Join the discussion here
> TIPS FOR ARTISTS: If you haven't glanced over it already, then do.. Saatchi Art has a wealth of knowledge and tips for artists - we get sent their weekly newsletter and this week were guided to their How to Appropriately Price Your Artwork post, a question I get asked here at The Print Room a lot!
> MORE ON CAREERS & THE ARTS: A reminder that even some of the most successful artists of our time maintained other careers alongside their artwork; How Joseph Cornell, Barbara Kruger, and 8 Other Artists Subsidized Their Art via Artsy Editorial
