do you think if an artist is a complete idiot in the business world, has no money and few friends or contacts they have a chance in hell? i've come to the hideous conclusion i'm probably up the creek.
in my day to day life it has been shown over and over i'm incompetent in most any dealings with others. in my own art making i often take days to do something someone who is logical and able minded would do in minutes.
is it common for artists to feel each and every day that they cannot take it another day? that almost everything about their life is unbearable? that they can't even imagine another option or way to live? this is why i prefer to stick my head in the sand and just make art and not think. but that has gotten me no where and i wont have that luxury much longer. i wouldn't be so pissed if art making wasn't so important to me. pissed at myself for being so damn stupid.
