I am seeing all these surveys coming out about artists in the recession, including one I conducted a few months back that revealed that on average Asian American artists in New York were making less than $10,000 a year from their art, and that many were going into debt of up to $5,000 to support their art making.
Is it possible to live solely from making your art today? What's your story? Do you have day jobs, side jobs, have you moved to a place that's less expensive, or are you in fact thriving and getting gigs left and right? How have things changed for you in the past couple of years? What are you doing differently and is it working?
