Gig Faces: David Spear on the freedom and burden of freelance art



David Spear, 41, works as a freelance artist in Columbia.

He has crafted a career from independent contract work, but he says it can be “a little bit tricky.”

“Obviously, there’s the freedom to work whenever you want,” Spear said, “but that’s also a burden because every minute of your time you’re wondering what you could do and what you could work on.”
