I identify with the core concept of the tortured artist — the artist who is constantly suffering due to frustrations with art and other people — but I think I would be able to do a much better job if I had better resources.
I truly believe I would feel much more alienated and misunderstood if I could operate within a better financial framework. I have already tried smoking, sexual frustration, professional envy, heartbreak, and an array of other overwhelming emotions and inner conflicts — but I have truly failed due to the lack of a proper budget.
Being narcissistic and extraverted, but also self-loathing and introverted, is quite a personal and monetary challenge. Even self-mutilation and attempted suicide would be much more effective if I could afford the right tools.
A fully funded tortured artist is a truly productive tortured artist. Help me help myself feel more inadequate! It is an investment in me and in the future of society. Thank you.
