>>3564178>Okay first of all, you don't get to decide when a painting comes out good
Yeah you kind of do. You're in charge of the creative direction and it's your time being expended. Have you ever worked in a production environment with deadlines and budgets and stuff?
Not to mention that I'm my own client. I'm working for my production company.> second of all, why are you so obsessed with the idea of dying poor and getting famous.
Mostly just obsessed with dying tbphwyf. And when did I say in any of the actual production conversation I was trying to have did I say shit about either of those things? >It's not "all or nothing bb".
Is for me. >What if hypothetically people start getting interested in your paintings before you die?
They already are it's been really annoying trying to explain why I won't sell anyone any of my shitty acrylic paintings. Why do you think I'm working on a toxic argument bot? >If you start making a decent living at this in your life will you consider yourself a failed artist?
Fuck no. Just become reflected as part of the series probably? I don't really care about myself as an "artist" necessarily. This entire thread is about that. Are you an artist or a producer? >Will you stop painting?
Never make another painting after the race is over. >What's wrong with having a comfortable normal life?
Nothing. I don't think people are actually living "comfortable normal lives" though. Bunch of self-destructive media junkies circlejerking around a bunch of goofball dogma as they let the future slide into an actual dystopia. This is not a time in history where humanity should be sedate and comfortable, and yet the beautiful disaster is we're already like 30 years too late to stop it. Internet addiction alone is an entire epidemic that we're not ever picking at yet.
You're on a sinking ship and you sold the lifeboats in 2010. How do you choose to spend your time before everything is underwater?
