   Well, you see... no. A "true artist" produces what s/he produces beacuse
they want to, not because they want the money. The money just enables them
to go on producing stuff - if they don't get the money that way, they'll
keep up the day job and make art in their spare time. Money and fame are
irrelevant, teh important thing is to have made the art - be it a painting,
music, writing, sculpture, etc. There's a reason that the "starving artist"
is a stereotype.
