Could this be a spin off of the myth that artists are so special they couldn’t possibly do the same things “normal” people do?

I would add: Artists do not like to research; Artists are not good verbal communicators; Artists cannot write.

Also like and support your response to Mireca’s comment.

Keep on truckin’….

May I quote you!

That’s an impressive list and I guarantee some of it is going to show up in the book – or would you consider that too self-serving?

Artists must look the part – after all, we’re not part of the regular crowd (whatever that means ;-).

Have these, per chance, directly affected you?

I’m always impressed when someone communicates in a second language. My parents were linguists and educators (Spanish language was their passion; translating Lorca’s “Blood Wedding” for the first time into English).

And I understand your concern about the way that serving others can be a cover story for “only” serving ourselves.

I think the important word here is “only.”

Because, everything anyone does, at its core, is self-serving. The question is: what is at the heart of serving others?

You could also say a saint, like Mother Teresa, served others because it made her feel good inside.

I believe, when you are passionate about helping people, you are always serving yourself and the other simultaneously.

Yes, I’m very curious to see how artists view myths so I can better write this section of the book. And yes, I’m reaching out to my community to get your input.

But imagine if I wasn’t doing this? Wouldn’t that actually not just be selfish, but arrogant – that I would imagine I alone knew what to say about the myths that surround artists?

I would much rather have your input, write a meaningful chapter, and then exchange that meaning for moolah. You win. I win. There is no coercion or hidden agendas.

There is only me doing my art, part of which is to help you put your vision into the world even more effectively.

And if I am not paid for this, then what kind of role model would that be for you – wouldn’t that be supporting that,as an artist, you also should not be paid anything because it would appear self-serving?

Artists do live with the same 24hrs that other people do; Artists are difficult to live with; There is no sacrifice in being an artist; It is all fun or play; Artists are not a good financial investment; You cannot make a living as an artist; Artists are all liberal politically; Non-artists are not creative; The world can live without artists!

This references my sculptural work, which may be a tad creepy.
