On-line literary magazine The Millions has a provocative interview with an artist who is also a copyright lawyer that is worth a read. It grows out of a recently mounted art show at New York’s Drawing Center called “Day Job” which, according to the author,
“neatly upended the timeless lament of every struggling writer, artist and musician – My day job is robbing me of the time to do my REAL work! In a clever, counter-intuitive twist, the curator of the show asked a dozen artists to produce a work that illustrated how their day jobs enrich their art.”
I thought this was a fascinating question, and one well worth posing here. How does your day job shape, inform, and even enrich your writing?
