The problem with making money with art (for me anyway) is that when your life and well-being of your family depends on the art you are making it’s really easy to lose your way… unfortunately, I am saying “no” to a lot of projects lately that I could make money with because that project doesn’t feel right.
I turned down a book about healthy eating because it turned out it was more bullshit about getting as slim as possible or die. And there is nothing healthy about it in my opinion. I really want to do more commercial illustrations but .. but but but.. I am looking for really meaningful great projects, and I think I am not going to lower my expectations for the money. Maybe I am wrong and I am going to starve to death in the near future.
