(I’m working on an essay for a forthcoming book, the ARC Digest and while it pains me, I decided to cut the following paragraph…)

THE ARTIST
Artists, like cats, are difficult to herd. They resist umbrellas under which they might be categorized. They are often (though certainly not always), amateur entrepreneurs in the most basic and amateur sense: they love things and their ideas. With an arrogance that challenges our ever-specializing world, they mine facts, aesthetics and business strategies from whereever they please. They don’t believe in business school as much as they embrace a trial-by-fire capitalist attitude. Perhaps above all else, they believe that the world is malleable.
