Arts & Jobs

I heard a starving artist on a radio call-in show the other day and started thinking about the relationship between art-making and bill-paying. 

I am extremely fond of artists like Summer Pierre who have a day job to pay the bills, and still manage to make art. More to the point, these artists don't look at their day job as an excuse to not create art. They also don't look at their artmaking as an excuse not to get a day job, or not to pay the bills. 

Summer's zine about being an artist with a day job covers this topic far better than I can - go check her out.
