Sparrow: Yeah there's a huuuuuge difference between being an artist and being creative- and pretty much like you said, it's that being able to control it. If you can pick n choose when you do your makings and can sacrifice that time for other thing like jobs and socializing, then you're not a real artist, you're just creative.
I mean yeah you're functional in the aspect that you make money from what you do, but only through fortune rather than judgement (you've said yourself you don't 'business' anything, you just make it and list it). And because like you said, to be a true artist you gotta be 100% and you can't have a real world life and be 100% at the same time, there's just no space for that. So it's like she'd be saying to the class 'ok you want to be a real artist you have to give up everything outside your studio like this lady does'.
Maybe there is no place in the 'real world' for a real artist, there's only being able to harness creativity and a certain level of commercial viability. If you commit to being a 'proper' artist you do have to give up on 'proper' life. But then if you're happy and not homeless, does it matter?
And like i told her literally 1st thing when she invited me- im not a model, the only reason i can do this is i have no kids, my parents bought me a house and i live in my pjs and do nothing else! and she's like yes exactly. tell them that.
Look, three rings. Not just that- notice my dark background? HU?!!! That's a departure for me. Shit it needs more contrast.
