The Collection returns for its possibly final installment with a live performance from Designer Con with Camilla d'Errico and Alex Solis. The life of a creative can take a lot of unexpected twists and turns and this episode focuses in on the optimism and hard work it takes to break through to the other side. When do you start to find your own style? Will I no longer have to live by spreadsheets once I'm successful? How do I kick myself into gear to get things done? The Collection answers all this and more as Mark Brickey and Huck Gee delve deeper into the world of business that surrounds art before and after the live Designer Con portion of the show.
