There's nothing more satisfying
Than being paid for your art. I wrote a song about it called "New Wages". "Every cent is worth a nickel, every nickel's worth a dime, and every dime is worth a dollar to me". It doesn't matter how much I get paid through other means thousands, millions, it won't compare. What I get paid for making art will always be worth exponentially more to me. It's so satisfying when someone is willing to hand over hard earned dough for a little slice of your imagination. And it's not because it's hard work, quite the contrary, it's fun and easy and it's becoming easier and easier every day. Hard work does not bring you more money. And when it does, somehow, it still feels like you've been ripped off. That's why I'm working at night for the new wages.
