Today I want to share with you some inspiration for artists. Talk with Todd McFarlane and how to make business serve art.
I think this is very useful for so many of us. Make some notes and be inspired.
I will share below short list with tips from this interview:

1. Find your passion.
2. Learn the details.
3. Look for an opening. 
4. Be persistent.
5. Make it sexy.
6. Fight the status quo.
7. Know your weaknesses
8. Hit your deadlines.
9. Entertain yourself
10. Make business serve art 

Todd goes deeper and explains you what is his philosophy and approach. It's super insightful and motivating.
