My Favorite Thing I’ve Read This Month

Just read a great interview with cartoonist Hugh MacLeod. This one is just too good not to share:

“Artists don’t have to suffer. Clueless no-talent dumb-fucks who call themselves artists have to suffer. ‘Artist’s cannot market’ is complete crap. Warhol was great at marketing. As was Picasso. The way artists market themselves is by having a great story. By having a “myth”. The art feeds the myth. The myth feeds the art. The worst thing an artist can do is see marketing as “the other”, i.e. something outside of themselves. It’s not.”
