One thing that has been extremely difficult for me to resolve in my life is the balance between creative freedom and remuneration. In my life this is resolved by working a gig as a sign-guy during the day and doing artwork during the free intervals of my life. Most creative people have some manifestation of this balancing act. I can't complain. I manage to hone skills at my work that I can later utilize in my artwork, and vice-versa. I try to effect no poses nor postures in the scheme of things. I'm a working-class hero. But along the way I've learned a lot about making Art.
