Question/Answer

Lightning Rod:

You asked "Do you have to be successful in the commercial sense To be a valid artist?"

I don't believe that to be true. I think many 'valid' artists have never really acheived success in the commercial sense. I think to be a valid artist is to believe in what you create and create it with passion. All else is just a label created by others to try to define something that is indefinable.
