When things get tough, this is what you should do: Make good art. Iâ€™m serious. Husband runs off with a politician â€” make good art. Leg crushed and then eaten by a mutated boa constrictor â€” make good art. IRS on your trail â€” make good art. Cat exploded â€” make good art. Someone on the Internet thinks what youâ€™re doing is stupid or evil or itâ€™s all been done before â€” make good art. Probably things will work out somehow, eventually time will take the sting away, and that doesnâ€™t even matter. Do what only you can do best: Make good art. Make it on the bad days, make it on the good days, too.
