  2. Take the cross out of the glass and drink up.

    Hey, I was once an occasional beachcomber. You know, a laborer of the soul and a maintainer of nature and a watcher-outer for invasion fleets. Should’a been able to make a good livin’ doin’ that.

  4. Artists should starve. It improves their output.

  5. She [she?] claims to be a “mirror of ” meeeeeeeeeeeee.

    Therefore she will have meterial for her “woooork” in whatever I throw at her. Like some nice soft sticky tofu? followed by bits of carrot, some arugula, old tomatoes and road apples.

  8. The true artist will let his wife starve, his children go barefoot, his mother drudge for his living at seventy, sooner than work at anything but his art.
    -George Bernard Shaw

    You know…. a Socialist

  10. I am a musical artist of sorts…I help finance my retirement by playing the didgeridoo (yes it’s weird, but someone has to do it). I work my butt off playing on the streets of a north Florida tourist area for tips, give lessons, play, make and sell didgeridoos at Farmers Markets and craft shows and backup local musicians when I can. I know a lot of visual artists, painters, sculptors, etc, that work the streets, give lessons and do markets to make a living off their work so if an artist cannot be self-supporting there is no excuse except laziness or perhaps creating such a poor product that nobody wants it.

  11. I have nothing to add, other than that didgeridoo music is cool.

    A friend got me listening to Richard Walley a few years back and it’s great music to work by.

  13. If she wasn’t such a syphilitic-ridden commie douche, I’d tell her to eat me.

  15. Produce art that people want.

    They will give you money for it.

    You can buy food with that money.

    Problem solved.

  16. I discovered years ago that there are many mute, inglorious Miltons out there. I have heard amazing singers at camp sing a longs, read great novels found in bargain bins, seen mind blowing paintings in art fair kiosks. Fame and fortune are a crapshoot, and there are a lot of players.

  20. If she gets really desperate, she can cut off an ear. Kinda chewy, I imagine. I *think* they grow back; I’m not sure.

  21. If I can do it, it’s not art.

  22. Become the 21st century Norman Rockwell. Paint a thankgiving dinner scene of grandma serving Turkey TV dinners, beer and everyone at the table w a cellphone in their ears. Every one at the table wearing a hoodie. A window in the background w cracked bullet holes and outside a whore bending over in a car window of a Democrat senator………..

    And paint it all on velvet!!!!!!

  23. Funhouse mirror, I’m thinking.

    Comment by SteveHGraham — November 15, 2012 @ 7:58 am

  24. WaitaMinnit!!! I’m a artist!! Maybe even a artiste!!!!

    I work real hard making artistic piles of Stuff! And I even won a Prize!!

    So people should give me money, or food, or a house to live in, so I can keep being a artist.
