This a fucking lie
@ArtistMarciaX Pfft. My dopamine whatevers don't react much to money, either, but as a software engineer, I don't think that's had much of an impact on my income.
I react to money. Bc I can eat. I can pay my rent and bills and I can sustain my practice.
I'll read the article yes, but there seems to be a surge in articles discussing why artists are poor for this or that reason.
We are often POOR bc people DO NOT VALUE ARTISTS they just want the product. Capitalism is a killer of culture and art.
We see a lot of examples of clients telling makers that they are too expensive.
You're asking for a person to pay for materials and take a lot of time to make something. "Its cheaper here" yea bc its made with shit and by a machine.
