    I'd say yes, but my past performance pretty much guarantees that I'll be bored with whatever-it-is long before it gets to the $1000 stage much less the $100,000 stage.

    Still, if I get the chance someday I'll try it. I could probably stand it for a year and hey -- $100,000.

    I have the opposite concern about one-trick ponies: there are certain things I enjoy drawing very often (it's probably a symptom of my autistic tendency towards obsessiveness), but I'm scared that eventually people will tire of my favorite subject matter and demand that I draw something different. In my case, I worry that being a one-trick pony will hurt rather than help my popularity.

    Yeah, considering how much paintings sell for when certain artists meet their demise - Get what you can because you may not see that kind of money after you die for your work of course

    Is that really an ethical question? I'd guess that lots of people in the world do things for money that they probably wouldn't do for fun--with a clear conscience.

    It's an ethical question depending on your "art morals".

    Has anyone tried faking their death to see if it helps their brand?

    Didn't somebody write a story about that once?

    I seem to remember a Beerbohm story where either an artist or writer faked their death to generate sales... (or was it someone else...) Damn, I wish I could remember now.

    If an artist is afraid or unwilling to explore, as am I into their work. Don't mean they wont make bank, just means I wont be watching the piggy.
