Below is a link to an article written by Amanda Palmer in The Guardian. I think it is very much worth reading. Relevant. Print it out. And frame it. I had the honour and pleasure of working (painting, live) on Amanda Palmer’s stage for a couple of nights at the Union Chapel in London. I highly respect her vision and work.
Being an artist can be tough, and there is often little understanding about what it takes to make a living as an artist. To make projects happen. People easily think that the work itself is the reward. But nope, even though it can be a rewarding one, it’s a job, and we need to make a living.
Please read and share!
