Wait...Is that what most artists want? I mean, it make sense to me. There's a piece of paper and and pencil, and I really don't need anything else. But Poet worries about how we'll live the next year and my family left in Oklahomaphobic wants to see me and my niece is still struggling with cancer and needs support. I'm not complaining. This is a normal life given the average American, but if this is average, is this what other artists experience?
Also, jobs. Jobs, in my mind, are there so I can eat and draw. I don't plan far enough ahead to think about retirement. The job is there to serve my purpose. But I have to work for both Poet and myself, leaving no time for 'arting.' What's worse is it makes the arting feel like a liability and I often forget that I'm working to art. If only drawing could be the job.
Well, anyway, I'm off to draw some more before X-mas. Thanks for reading my little rant.
