Passion, humiliation, and depravity are the cornerstones of the artistic spirit. How else to rationalize one's deliberate choice to face a life of unsigned rejection letters, calls from worried parents and collection agencies, and cups and cups of ramen noodles? Being a noble artiste is a rough gig. It's one part denial, one part masochism. And it gets all the respect of being a fry cook, without the convenient minimum wage. Only a fool would agree to such soul crushing -- until now. The Starving Artist's Survival Guideboldly reassures both the dreamer and the doer that you are not alone.Regardless of whether you are a painter, a poet, a musician, a writer, an actor, or simply paralyzed by an English lit or fine arts degree, help has arrived. Topics include the pros and cons of various artistic day jobs (qPeople love clowns, except for the 80 percent who want to beat them up and the 20 percent who doq), coping with form-letter rejections through the healing power of haikus (qYou, blinking red light, / A call back from my agent? / No, just goddamn Momq), a survey of artists' dwellings (from the romanticized loft to Mama's rent-free attic), and most important, qHolding On: Ten Good Reasons to Keep Your Head out of the Oven.qWhata#39;s cool is the Scooby-Doo Band-Aid on your flute case, or the Boy Scout pin that holds your suspenders together. Whata#39;s cool is the fashion that comes, unscripted, out of who you are. If youa#39;re a neatnik, your attire should reflect this aspect.
