Ask an Artist Nobody's perfect

We all try to do our best, but sometimes things go wrong.  How you deal with mistakes and problems is just as important as the work you produce.  Laura and Peter have both had their share of things to deal with: work that has not gone to plan, or deliveries that have gone astray.  Whether the issue is artistic or business you still have to deal with it and doing that well can turn a problem into a benefit
