    Artists are so misunderstood….

    A few “artists” get very handsomely paid. Andy Warhol comes to mind. As do many others.

    Anything creative is always expected to be free. Like people who find out you can crochet and they ask you to make them something. They seem to forget yarn costs money and your time is worth something too.

    Scientists are more misunderstood when they are even listened to.

    Andy Warhol had more inside of him than just 15 minutes… but he also was in with the right people… same for some who survived “Studio 54”… some artists from the past weren’t rolling in it exactly when they died… but these days, it’s changed some….

    Ever notice that when an “artist” other than Ruthie appears in the strip, they’re an idiot. Standard treatment by cartoonists, who universally believe they aren’t taken seriously enough as artists. (I speak as an artist who definitely appreciates cartoonists.)
    I concede to the commenter above that some people think you should give them stuff. It’s possible that this is all the further this rant goes. But if she’s saying that she deserves a good living simply because she has declared herself an artist, then I don’t buy that at all.
    Lest you think I exaggerate, one of my fellow graduate students complained to a professor that she had just discovered that graduates who had majored in things like business tended to make more money than people who majored in art, and she thought that was. . . Wait for it. “Unfair.”

    What is really painful is when your career takes off only after you are dead. Bummer.

    Just get yourself a contract to supply “public art” to the government to place in front of govenment buildings.. Go down to the local scrap yard, buy some scrap steel, weld it together to make an “installation”, bill the government $50,000, repeat as long as you can get away with the scam.
    Every one knows that is how you find government buildings in a new town. Just look for the ugly piles of scrap metal in front.
    Your tax dollars at work!
