20 Jul If someone calls you a sellout, do this …
If someone ever calls you a sellout for making money from your dream, ask them how long they’ve been refusing a paycheck at work.
Ask them if every two weeks they march into HR and hand back their salary.
Ask them if they cancelled their direct deposit because being financially compensated cheapened their job somehow.
Ask them if they refused their raise last year.
Ask them if they shot blocked their bonus like an angry Mutombo.
Ask them if they turned a cold shoulder to an unexpected sales commission in the hope of keeping their craft pure.
Or just ignore them all together and go back to doing work you care about.
Your choice really.
Getting paid for your art means you get to keep making art. Sellout is a compliment.
