Would you/did you "sell out?"?
I am an artist, and I’m not necessarily any good, but it is a lifelong passion for me and something that I’ve always dreamed of being successful with (aka making a profit).
Something playful that I did generated enough interest that I feel like I could expand on it, and that combined with recent opportunities has made a good opening to try.
The problem is that it almost expresses a social statement that I don’t necessarily endorse or agree with. Eliminating that element would destroy the appeal and marketability of the series, so that isn’t an option. I do intend to go ahead with the project, but I feel strange about it.
Do you think you would “sell out?” Do you think you would or could promote or create something that isn’t really “you?” Have you?
