patrons of the arts

Sometimes I wish I had a patron. The artists equivalent of a sugar daddy. Live in their villa and make stuff all day long. I think Starbucks is the new patron of the arts. Even if you work part time you get benefits, you make amazing contacts and caffeine is definitely a staple in most artist diets.

I love the crafters site Etsy because it makes it easy for you to be a patron too. Artists at all levels can sell their crafts online. I like how democratic it is, no discrimination on who can sell what. It takes away the elitist mentality and price tags so you can merely find what suits your tastes.

I just bought this little woodblock print from a guy in Singapore, and it only cost me $6 including shipping.

I love monsters.
