NOT BLANK SKETCHBOOK #3
And 2 ways to make art
📝 Two ways to make art
You can make art as an Artist. You make whatever you want, whenever you want, charge anything you want and put it in a gallery or online and wait for someone to buy it.
Or you can make art for a client. They will tell you what to make, and when to make it and who it is for. They will pay you half before you start and the other half when you’re done. Ish.
There are trade offs both ways. Choose your trade offs.
