The problem with starving artists

Cover Image

I'm thinking of making art to sell, now that I no longer have school. The business part seems pretty easy to grasp, but the problem is, I don't know who's too broke to buy anything, or if a non-broke person would pay me more than five bucks for it. After all, non-artists LOVE that goddamn Starving Artist stereotype.

And then there's the problem that an Asian(-American) girl isn't doing pretty Asian ink paintings, but "really gritty Mad Max styled urban art" or "really weird fantasy, like Guillermo del Toro's style."

Just mulling things over right now.
