I'm Such a Sell-Out

Artists are always being accused of selling out. What, are we concerts or something? Last I checked, no one was buying tickets to me. And what if they were? What's so bad about that? I've always found making a living to be something admirable.

Truth be told, those of us getting paid for utilizing our creative talents aren't selling out... We're buying in. And when you think about it, isn't that so much worse?

By the way... I know you're wondering. The top layer is mint chocolate chip and the bottom layer is bubblegum.

A classic combination of flavors.

You always, always - put the mint chocolate chip on the bottom - It provides a strong flavor base.

How's life at Disney treating you? Is it like my imagination where Donald Duck and Mickey Mouse walk around handing out candy?

So you're saying there's no more tickets to you? Crap.

Max Kellerman once said something like "Every time anybody wakes up in the morning and goes to work, they're selling out." It's gotta be done.

Personally I'd rather be a Buy-In. But selling out isn't so bad, if it pays off. ...mouths to feed and all that.

I could be a Fine Artist. But then rather than being a sell-out, I could be making tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars for each piece of work I've done. That's not selling out, is it? Where's the distinction?

Nothing wrong with being paid for your work. If you happen to love your work, what a joyous bonus! If others enjoy it, (and, by the way, I enjoy yours) that's even better!
