Some artists think their art appeals to everyone because family and friends are always enthusiastic.

Some artists mistakenly believe that their chosen vocation entitles them to be “free spirits.” Normal rules and schedules do not apply in their world. They do whatever they want, when they want and how they want.

Artist Myth #2: Society Owes Artists a Living. Some artists feel that their contributions to society and culture merit more financial support.

I think there may be a new renaissance of illustrative traditional art on the rise. Jason Edmiston and N.C. Winters are the proof.
