A great post at Ed Winkleman's today on "the day job" and how it affects gallerists' opinion of you.

This is ridiculous - not Ed's comments, but the idea that a "day job" makes you less of an artist. Your comment was right on target - but I have to add that if only the trust fund babies can create "purely" in the eyes of the gallerists, then the art will likely be as removed from reality and substance as they are. (Hey...wait a minute...is that what is at the core of this low-brow-graffiti movement????)

Thank goodness for Lichtenstein, Barbara Krueger, and Sandy Skoglund (the ones I can think of off the top of my head) who did not/do not hesitate to teach in spite of their success.
