How should you treat colleagues?

Short answer
With friendliness, cheerfulness and gratitude.

Long answer
It is easy to get the impression that the artist’s job is a one-man enterprise, but if you were the only person on Earth, it is unlikely that your work would look the way it does, or even that you would have accomplished anything at all. Art is a group enterprise with an endless exchange of ideas, mixed with the one that show you what it should not look like. Very useful. We are dwarfs on the shoulders of gaints, abd as such it behooves us to be cautiously freindly.
