How does your economic reality effect your art?
Debt affects the art I make because it's constantly on my mind as a hurdle that I must pass to be a successful artist. The looming economic reality that I should be in another career besides art to take care of the financial woes. It's a more rewarding experience as an artist to not have to think about finances when creating works of art.
