The Starving Artist


I have heard the term “starving artist” a time or two. I wonder why creative people are equated with financial struggle. To be honest most artists just care about their art and express themselves however we can neglect the element of money in the mix. I have met creators who at times have to decide to price and value their artistic worth. For example a clothing designer has to give a price to their collection based on the hard work they have put out. At times some people complain about the price but how are these designers and other creative survive. Everyone has bills to pay. . This is a situation all creatives have to deal with it. Artists can be exploited for their blood, sweat, and tears. So next time an upcoming designer has a great piece that they have created or musician sells their music please consider supporting them if you like what you see or hear. Here is something to consider how many creatives you know? And do you support them financially?
