Brazen Careerist author Penelope Trunk is known for all sorts of well, lively remarks on her blogs. Some of them seem a little too personal. Her divorce. Her love life. Her battle with bulimia. Somehow it makes all of career advice make sense. This writer isn’t sure why. So today she lectures the artists out there, who probably are already taking her advice without reading her online. She says keep your day job. Check. You don’t need to starve to make art. Double-check. “Art emanating from a hole is a choice,” she says. “There’s a reason that Jean-Michel Basquiat‘s paintings look like horror films: Because his life was a crack-house horror film.” We know. Another check on the list. Finally, real artists work no matter what. We knew that already, but it’s good to match with reality. She didn’t mention that it might be worthwhile reading her book, but it repeats a lot of the advice already on her site.
