the best way to be an artist
is to make money
doing something which is not art
so when you make art
you are not influenced by the buyer.
one trick to escape being a bitch
is to be ironic about it
which is what artists tried to do
in the last hundred years
but then all your art is just irony.
is to simply become
an extremely evasive addict
and reduce your consciousness
to just wanting money.
