The term, starving artist has been used in the art business world for waay too long.
Accepting that title as a right of passage, or as a badge of honor – saying that art and money don’t mix – is the trap that can leave you broke and dry up your dream to create faster than you can blink your pretty creative eyes.
Tying your self-worth to money is wrong on so many levels. If you’re cool with nomoney, then, that’s cool. If you’re cool withmoney, then, that’s cool too. Just don’t be adverse to money for the sake of someone else’s ideas about how it relates to art and your own self-worth.
Think about this: What are some things you like that need money? Do you like to buy food? Need money. Do you like to buy food for your furry friend? Need money. Like to drive? Need money.
