Who said that you couldn't feed two people on $20 a week, and plan a trip to Europe? Unwillingly you can.
"Got stopped at the mall the other day
Heard a call from the other way that I just came from
Some nigga was sayin somethintalkin bout
"Hey man, you remember me from school? Smoke some?"
Naw not really but he kept smilin like a clown
Facial expression lookin silly
And he kept askin me, what kind of car you drive, I know you paid
I know y'all got buku of hoes from all them songs that y'all done made
And I replied that I had been goin through tha same thing that he had
True I got more fans than the average man
But not enough loot to last me to the end of the week
I live by the beat like you live check to check
If you don't move yo' foot then I don't eat
So we like neck to neck" -Andre (Elevators)
So after a very long and unmotivated hiatus, I got the motivation I needed to start producing art again. It only took a few months.
The Andre quote above is from this sort of epiphany that I had. The epiphany happened while I had no direct income and my stomach was rumbling. I came upon great divine knowledge: "I don't draw, we don't eat."
Now its not as if I have been sitting idle waiting for miraculous checks to come rolling in. As some of you know I've been painting and cleaning.
(*each one of thoes buckets is a different colour* This was only enough paint for 5/8 of all the rooms. We still got A garage and cellar to finish. But that's not till the spring)
But at some point an income needed to be made. So this is my Coming Out of Hiatus Declaration, "I don't draw, we don't eat."
