Artist Barter

Remember my post from a couple of weeks ago about surviving as an artist/small business in this rocky economic times? I mentioned bartering as a well to help get supplies, gifts or services in exchange.

Well, it appears that its a growing trend and not just among artists. There's an article in the New York Times about artist bartering today. It's a good read, if you are interested the link is here.
