He has written a book called The Art of Being Creative Without Having a Job.
LAFLEUR: I always thought it was the ultimate goal of every artist to have a job, but now I’m finding out that a lot of them don’t.
Art is a passion, so that means a lot to me.
LALAFLEURI: I’ve always been an artist.
I was born into it.
I grew up in a family that was art-oriented, and I was very good at it.
But I think, more than anything, it was about my parents’ generation that was able to afford the kind of education that I did.
Art was always a way for them to keep their kids away from school and keep themselves away from drugs and violence and a lot that was really fucked up.
It was a very safe environment.
Art wasn’t about being famous or something.
ART LAFLUR: It was about making something out of nothing.
It’s always been about the things that you love to do.
It wasn’t like art school, which is the only way you can really really learn about something.
I think it was really important to me that my work not be commercial.
You could have your money and not do art.
That’s not the way I’ve done it, and it’s not how I’m going to do it for the rest of my life.
LACLEUR:-I started to realize that there were many people who could do what I wanted to do with a computer, and not being able to get a job was just a big problem for a lot people.
LABELLE: I was never able to have an income, which means that my job was mostly unpaid.
LAPLAR: I never thought of being an artist, but I started to think that maybe I could have some kind of career after school.
Art has always been a way of life.
I never knew I could make it, but then I got an offer from a guy in the neighborhood who was really interested in me and wanted to work with me.
I knew that I could work on my own, so I did that.
I would come in to work and I would just be staring at the walls for hours at a time.
I had to make it a living.
LFAL: I grew out my hair and did hair extensions and made up makeup and did all the little things.
I always knew that if I made it into the world, I would be a big part of it.
That was something I always had in mind.
LANCASTER: I thought that I would probably be a lawyer.
I didn’t know I would eventually be a designer, or a teacher or whatever.
LASLAS: I got my master’s degree in art from the art school in Quebec.
I made a lot more money from that than from anything else I did, so it was always there.
LAWLAS:-I wanted to make a career out of it, even though I didn’st think I could.
I wanted something more than just an art school.
I thought I could do something else, so if that means I don’t get paid, that’s fine with me.-It’s kind of crazy to think about it now.
LAGO: I started out making pencils.
I did them in my bedroom and in the back of the house.
I used to be a painter and I made money doing that.
It kind of became my life, and now I make money doing it.LAGO and LAFLER: I don´t think you can do it forever.
I mean, I started off making pencil shapes.
And then I started making pencil patterns.
So it just sort of kept coming.
I don,t know if it’s like the future.
Maybe the future is just going to be more digital and more interesting and more exciting and more creative.
And that’s where it all started.
I just sorta started making things that I liked.
LAALAS:, I didn´t even know what it was until I met the people that I was drawing from.
I still don´T know what I was doing, but it was kind of like my own
