This post inspired me to put something similar on my blog: http://thriveal.com/2008/12/25/the-starving-artist/

Our CPA firm is serving more and more creatives and we find them excellent at business management. I love it!

Thanks, Jason M. Blumer, CPA

The article reflects the changing face of the small artist who truly lives off the income of their art.Many today have electronic websites/blogs/SS feeds that produce their idenity around the world.
We host many of these artists and we find their imagination is endless to their art and business savy

I believe that aspiring entrepreneurs should consider taking an art course to help them exercise their creativity.

If an artist is able to automate their business, they will be able to spend more time focusing on their artwork and presenting it to their clients.

As one non-artist, I often ask my artistic friends about their techniques, and believe me, many artists can monetize and share tips with their knowledge. The experience is what artists can monetize -- as well as the creative pieces themselves.

Thanks for the article. :-)
