Cool Don't Pay the Bills

The nice people over at Gelaskins recently connected me with the fine young Canadians over at Format Magazine. We found the time to have a chat and they posted some of the interview on their site. Most importantly they captured one of my favorite phrase "cool don't pay the bills." 
Interpret that how you feel, but over time it's been very apparent that often the "coolest" jobs don't pay anything, and the boring ones bring home the bacon. Part of any successful artists endeavoring must have a healthy balance of both to keep the cash flowing in (this is in order to be able to keep functioning forward). I'll try to elaborate more on my beliefs about the topic of creative financing in another blog, in the meantime Format has some terrific articles and links. Check them out when you have time.
