Q + A with David Shrigley
Here's a taster...
I imagine that you have an advice for art students stock answer (you must get asked a lot) although I don't think I have ever read it, care to reiterate?
My advice is:
Your degree mark is unimportant.
Try not to spend too much money on your art (unless you're rich)
Put the hours in and the art will get made.
You don't have to be an artist when you leave art school if you don't want to, but if you do want to then it is entirely possible: All you have to do is keep making art.
