Creative artists, in dance, art or music are often commercialized to the hilt. Some argue that the purity of creations is tainted if the end goal is to amass many followers or to earn lots of money. Art, according to them, should just be for art’s sake.
The truth is somewhere in the middle, and one can take note of the myths about being creative, to avoid being a ‘starving artist’ for life.
“The artist has a duty to find an adequate expression to convey it to as many souls as possible.”
In the book ‘Real Artists Don’t Starve’, the author (Jeff Goins) states that art does not have to be obscure and hidden to be beautiful.
Artists who are ‘starving’ but really good are mostly caricatures and have little do do with the real world, where they come from all kinds of income groups and backgrounds.
True artists try to shun any self-promotion, which looks sleazy to them, and because they see bad artists exploiting it. One has to understand that marketing is an important tool, and is not inherently evil.
A good piece of art needs the desired audience, which becomes the artist's responsibility.
One does not have to be sleazy to succeed. One can have class, character and produce great art, while still be able to make decent money out of the endeavour.
Money buys us time and space to create another beautiful piece of art.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
