A genius post from Steff Metal on the lovely Abundant Artist website.
“If you want to make an honest go of being a full-time artist, at some point you’re going to have to ask people for money. That’s quite a scary contemplating. Many of us have got it in our heads that money in the art world is kind of crass – especially when we’re first setting up our websites.

That’s right – Justin Bieber gets your money.”
