I think often about “artistic purpose” – and while, yes, I do get money for my work (I’m a professional, this is my full-time job) that’s not my only purpose for creating art. Today when I was thinking about this topic I had my tongue firmly planted in my cheek… and I did this poem and illustration.
Strummer – By Sue Clancy
Strummer played music for money,
Ribs, rolls, butter and honey
Or any other tasty dish
Like beef or lamb or fish
A scrambled egg would even do, if not too runny.
