Artists should NOT starve!!!
I work daily in a dedicated and diligent manner to create music, photography & art. Many sacrifices & long hours at the 9-5 grindstone have been made to save up for & invest in: self education, instruments, supplies & equipment. I have a young family who depend on me to provide them with food, shelter, clothing & education. Please don't steal from my babies!
