Most art is a luxury, so when it comes to necessity vs. luxury, necessity wins more often. Find out how to make your art a practical, functional necessity and wallah....tiki mug? Don't ax me. I had to ponder this too.
For me, the tikis I carve can blend in with some landscapes I install, so they work together. Sometimes they don't. But then again a landscape is not a necessity, nor is a tiki, go figure. I'm the last guy that a homeowner pays after having his house built and by then, sometimes there's no money left. It can take many years to become established. Hang in there and practice, practice, practice. Soak up ideas like a spongey reggae kinda guy and don't box yourself in. blah, blah, blah.
