Art isn’t free. Stop acting like it is.


For every artist that has been offered “exposure” as currency

For every artist that can’t figure out a way to make their passion sustainable

For every artist that gets the silent treatment when the word “budget” comes up

“Every piece of art that exists in the world started as an idea. Every idea was turned into something real by an artist. Every time that reality met or exceeded the idea it’s because that artist put blood, sweat, and tears into not only the art but the years of learning and practice that preceded the art.

Art isn’t free.

Stop acting like it is.”
