ON BEING A FULL-TIME ARTIST
I get a lot of questions from people about being a full-time artist.
Yes, it's awesome.
No, I don't spend all day painting and playing.
Yes, I do still have to do lots and lots of stuff that I don't want to do.
No, I can't think of another job I'd rather have.
I'm super grateful for this lucky life that allows me to do what I love. But something I have to remember every day is that while I'm an artist, I'm also a business. There's a lot that goes into running a business. Some of it fun, some it boring, but all of it important.
Today I thought I'd share a list of a few of the things that are true for my life as a full-time artist.
