The Sliding Scale of “Fine” and “Commercial” Artists

10 May

I Love Dyske. I have previously posted this. This article, discussing the difference between fine and commercial art really described an ongoing dilemma for most designers of today: what are you doing this for? zFor a lot of people, it is for the financial benefits. And not every field of work questions why it’s making money, so that’s great. SOme people think that is not so great that money is a motivator and do it just because they have to. In his writings, Dyske describes how everyone is a little bit of both fine and commercial artists and how the difference is having something to say rather than needing to be heard. It’s a lovely piece.
