Reading the quote from Nan Goldin in my previous post reminded me of some interesting advice Jeffrey Vallance gave to me and my fellow UCSB MFA students during class one day. Someone asked him a question along the lines of "How do you make it as an artist financially?" He replied in all thoughtful seriousness that we would simply have to get a lot of credit cards and max them out. I remember sitting there stunned to be hearing such a suggestion. Anywho one google search later and I discover that Jeffery was on Letterman and also hosted a show on MTV in the 80's, bizzaro.
