Chris Locke doesn’t believe there’s anything weird about making a living with art. Or teaching kids that they can, too.
Why is it that when you envision impossible stuff while asleep, you’re dreaming. But when you think of impossible stuff while awake, you’re crazy?
We tell kids they can be astronauts, we tell them they can be presidents, but for some reason telling them they can be an artist is beyond the realm of responsible parenting.
Chris Locke spent $100k going to school to be something other than what he was. Since then, he has sold thousands of drawings and paintings through his business Heartless Machine. And as an art teacher, he constantly tells his students and anyone who listens that they can be artists.
And that’s not weird at all.
