Creative cash.

/Creative cash.

There’s a common misconception at play here, one where artists who remain impoverished need to remain so to produce anything of worth – why, just look at Van Gogh! Never sold a painting in his life, and now they’re worth millions!

You know what stunted my own creativity? The power going off. Hunger. Sleepless nights worrying about bills.

You can also be as creative as you want in your own mind, but it’s tough to maintain a continual body of new art work when you’re working 3 jobs to afford the rent.
