Why we are burning out in the arts Even by arts industry standards, poet, playwright, fantasy novelist, columnist, librettist and performance critic Alison Croggon has a lot to juggle. She admits she has ‘flirted with burnout' for years. ‘Burnout is an occupational hazard in the arts,’ said Croggon. ‘There's no doubt that artists face particular issues, which are largely to do with the fact that so many work outside institutions, often alone, and have no structures to assist them or any kind of financial stability.’ Burnout is a challenge for anyone who works hard in a competitive and unrelenting profession. But there are particular issues for those in the arts industries.
5 Tools For Creating Your Own Infographics Five years ago, almost nobody knew what the heck an infographic was. (I sure didn’t, and I was a graphic design major in college at the time.)

These are the most obese countries in the world A recent study showed that 700m people across the world are obese. These maps show obesity levels around the world - with red showing countries with the highest proportion of people classified as obese and green having the lowest proportion. The graphics were created by Clinic Compare using data from the CIA’s World Factbook and show that obesity is a problem affecting every continent. Interestingly, although countries in North America and Europe appear prominent on the global map owing to their size, the countries with the biggest obesity problems are almost exclusively found in the Pacific Islands - with American Samoa (74.6 per cent of the population), Nauru (71.1 per cent) and Cook Islands (63.7 per cent) making up the top three. The UK is 43rd on the list with 27 per cent of the population being classified as obese while the US is 18th with 33 per cent.

Unlike the basic halftone line effect used in other tutorials, this method actually uses curved and wavy lines that vary in weight to produce an accurate replica of this classic illustration technique. Enter 4mm in the Size option and apply 11 ridges in the settings.
