It’s not unlike the dilemma artists have had — how do you maintain fealty to your art and make a living. There’s never been a guarantee that art can provide a living. Most artists don’t. And then the artist needs to get a day job to support their themselves. Sometimes that means the art gets abandoned. It’s a tough choice.
Look! A cartoon! ☺
One wonders why Americans think that culture should make money.
