Originality 9: Investing in Art

In this episode Aleen and I talk about how artists go about getting support for their endeavors. Not just selling their stuff, but getting people to invest in them via crowdfunding, patronage, and the like. This is a topic near and dear to my heart, obviously, as I’m currently supported in part by folks on Patreon. However, I put off doing that for almost a year because I was afraid to ask for that support and didn’t feel I deserved it. We talk about that and more.
