..M2016 19 to accept the sacrifice it takes to be an artist. An identity from a title isnt something artists find to be important. A true creator knows their path and can accept a bit of ambiguity to get their big picture to come true. While writing for Punk Aristocrats I was able to meet amazing musicians and inter- view them. One of the most inspiring stories I heard was about a band that traveled the Unit- ed States in a single van. After a December show in NYC they realized they had enough money to either make it to their next show and buy McDonalds dollar menu burgers or get a hotel room to share and stay warm. They knew they needed the exposure in order to make it. So these 4 dudes cuddled in the van to get through the night. A few weeks later they were offered a record deal. While talking to my mom about ALL it is that I do she told me how proud she was of all the scur- rying around I do to get work. My first instinct was that I dont scurry I hustle Im a Creative Entrepreneur. A title an identity something that communicates WHO I am rather than WHAT I do. As a creative we DO lots of things but most importantly We contribute to society in a way that creates an uncharted path for everyone.
