Invited To Speak at FIT - 'The Business of Art' 10/22

Was just invited to speak again at FIT (Fashion Institute of Technology) on the 'Business of Art' . How to make a living as an artist. when i mentioned that to my good friend Mike Calderone (Airbrush master and owner of cycle-delics) he said 'when you find out let me know'. had a good laugh. last time i spoke the LIRR was running 2 1/2 hours late and i wound up speaking to the last of the class who wanted to hang and listen. Looking forward to sharing a few of my secrets as well as reminding all that it takes a bit of luck, cleaver ideas, good clients and the skillz to pay the billz. See you at FIT
