Ceramics were all gifts from various potter friends over the years. Antique Russian Santa dolls and Peruvian nativity figures gifted from my mother-in-law (the baby Jesus has been missing for a couple years now). I did all the arranging. Our dining room was an overlooked mess until a few months ago. Being unemployed during a global pandemic really upped my home game.

I wouldn't say "so much" art. Just some recent Jim Pollock prints. I was unemployed from mid-May to mid-September due to the postponement of the Olympics. Thankfully, they changed the law so freelancers could collect pandemic unemployment. That coupled with savings and some thinning out of the portfolio allowed me to frame three Keyes prints and one big Faile print. The dining room walls were bare for way too long.

No worries. I'm back on my feet with short gigs here and there. Plus, Olympic work is picking back up in early 2021 and with the Summer Games so close to the Winter Games now, I may ride that wave through March 2022.

Video editor on promos and pre-edited pieces that they drop into the live broadcasts (athlete profiles, historic look-backs, etc). I had been cranking on the Tokyo 2020 Games for a solid year before it all fell apart.

Yes, I was paid, lol. They fly less and less people to the locations these days, as technology lets them use their home studios pretty seamlessly now. A handful of people in my department were set to go to Tokyo. I was slated to stay at the CT headquarters.

At tiny showcase, timed:

This arrived a few days ago. Corners are all drymounted up.

Who packs like this? Not sure how anything else I bought from them was packed, but I do not remember receiving prints like that or maybe I have not bought from them in a while. I feel like I should complain, but not sure if it is worth it. Sure is disappointing.

Also, don’t remember the COAs:

Haven't bought from them in many years, but I always remember them being in a sleeve and chitty brown mailer.

I've had almost no problems with these folks. The only time something arrived damaged (USPS inflicted), I emailed and they quickly replaced with no hassle at all. I believe they also issued another COA with the original number.
