People say stupid things when they hear what one does for a living; sometimes inappropriate, sometimes rude, sometimes comical and enlightening. For example, when I tell people that I have a degree in English Literature, I save them some trouble and immediately follow it with, “theoretically, I should be robbing liquor stores but I’m actually an editor.” 😉
So I want to ask you, what are some memorable things that people have said to you when you say that you’re an artist? Professional, amateur, and everyone in between, I welcome your answers. One of my favorites that I’ve heard is, “Will you draw me?”
