I would really like you to read Holland Cotter's NYT article, "Lost in the Gallery-Industrial Complex," and let me know what you think.
Are you making a living as an artist?

* "The Public Be Damned shows the tremendous amount of control that monopolies had during the Gilded Age; they were controlling the congress, the legislature, and the American people. The cartoon was created by Frederick Burr Opper in 1882 and was published on the front page of "Puck" magazine in New York City. The cartoon was created during a time when the nation was dominated by big businesses and business titans like William Vanderbilt and Andrew Carnegie. Frederick Opper was a well known cartoonist, and he drew political cartoons, comic strips, and panel cartoons. Opper drew many effective political cartoons against trusts and monopolies." via Mr. Woodward's AP U.S. History Class.
