Welcome to Bastard Child Bootcamp!
We know you’re raring to get this show on the road, so we’ll get right to it.
You know, we know, everyone knows you’ve got talent. On second thought, maybe noteveryone. And that’s the fucking point!
The purpose of this bootcamp is to get you on track to changing that!
Art is art and business is business – and then the two worlds collide.
Now if you’re wearing on the tip of your tongue a well-polished speech about Art with a capital A, ART in caps or art in a British accent, or about Business having no business in Art then you can get the hell out. This isn’t the course for you.
There’ll be people who will hate me, touting desecration of the sanctity of art, and that’s fine. But if you want to succeed you need to learn the business of art or when you fail don’t come cryin’ to me ’cause you’ve got no business doin’ so.
Don’t misunderstand me. I get it. We are all about creating. We are all about being against the system. Down with the Man, and all that. I get it. I do. Business is a dirty in art. But I’m sorry, I’m not gonna use any other word to make you feel better.
This course is for artists who understand that, given the choice between shaking their creative money-maker and rotting in the societal cesspool known as the 9 to 5, they’d be flashin’ that tail in a second!
Who’s left? If I haven’t scared you away, this camp is for you.
You’re in it for the long haul. You’re gonna make it or die in the attempt. God darn it, I like you! You’re brave. You’re courageous. You are an artist. And artists are my favorite type of people. Artist have balls if nothing else. A rare bread who can be vulnerable, sensitive yet determined and perseverant all at once. Artist – you knock my socks off!
So if you’re ready to put your head down, grit your teeth and move your ass for the next 3 months, you’ll come up for air on the other side with a well-designed beginning to your own artistic business.
Hold on to your butts, your creative career is about to get awesome!
