HAHA yeah, i'm trying. i figure if i get enough people who know about me someone will eventually give me money. thank you! did you see my frickr account?
I'm not going to lie, and I know this sounds mean, but the part about hoping people will give you money is ridiculous. It looks, to me, that the ONLY reason that you want to be famous is to avoid work, and the easiest way you can see to attempt to do it is through art. This is also known as being lazy. Why not just make art your passion, make art your life? I don't get how someone could want to make art just for fame... Art isn't art unless it involves an artist.. and you can't be an artist unless your love and passion and desire and everything that you can possibly give goes into your art.
Exploiting art for fame is sad and low.
Thats my opinion.
So why not make it so art makes you?
