以下、抜粋。日本語訳はかなり適当につけてある。

Donny Millerの”HOW TO BECOME AN ARTIST!”


1. Get a picture. Your own or a found one. Better go with a found one. You probably can't take a picture, wait a minute, crappy photos are pretty hip. Okay, take a picture of a dog drinking out of the toilet. Either/Or.
 しょーもない写真を用意する。

2. Put a white square somewhere on that picture. Usually the middle seems to be the most artistic place for some reason. If it's over a face or point of interest, don't worry, that's what you intended. IMPORTANT! Never second guess your work. If someone doesn't like something, say to them, "I believe you are missing my point." Then get away quick, remember you have no idea what you're doing.
 その写真に白い箱を書く。
重要なのは、けっして自分のしてることをあきらかにしないこと。
反感されたら、「あなたはわかっていない」と言ってすぐ逃げろ。

3. Get someone to start talking about you and always talk about things you have going on, even if you don't have anything going on. When the phone rings, tell them you're busy doing heavy duty art and that you need to call them back when things aren't so heavy duty.
 なんし芸術家ぶってください

4. Make friends with other artists. Just to get shows with them.
 芸術家の友達を、つくります。

5. Get a show somewhere.
 その友達とどこかでショーをひらきます

6. Do something weird. Doesn't have to be totally outrageous. Dress a little on the eccentric side. One glove, a scarf...do you see what I'm getting at? Take a picture of your genitals and draw a mustache on it. Click here for an example.
 奇妙なことをしてください。たとえば、性器の写真を撮るなど。

7. Get some people to buy your art. Selling something to someone famous helps.
 誰かに自分のアートを買わせます。誰か有名な人だといいでしょう。

8. Get in a magazine with your art and get an interview. Get completely drunk and say crazy shit.
 雑誌のインタビューに載るようにします。そして完全に狂った発言をします。

9. Have a big show.
 大きなショーを開きます

10. Date a model and dump her. If you're a woman, date another artist and break his heart and watch him make all this crazy art about you. Then make sure it gets out that all his art is about you. People will want to see what you're all about.
 モデルとデートして、彼女を捨ててください。もしあなたが女性なら、他のアーティストとデートして、酷く悲しませてください。そして、彼が酷く狂うのを見ていていてください。そしてすべてが自分とかかわっているかのようにしてください。人々は、あなたに興味をもちます。

11. Get a book deal.
 本を出します


12. Now all the while do more crazy shit, like "borrow" a car and bring it back and say, "Oops, I thought this was my car. Sorry." Then leave a pair of women's underwear in the passenger's seat. It will get around, trust me.
 そしてもっと気が狂ったことをしてください。例えば、モデルとの仲を証明するため。レンタカーを返すとき、わざと女性の下着を助手席におくなど。これで周りの信頼を得ます。

13. Get back together with the model, dump her again. Go out with one of her friends.
 そしてもう一度彼女を捨てます。

14. Cash in ASAP. There isn't a lot of longevity in art. Let's face it, people get tired of shit real quick. Even great things. Look at Hootie and the Blowfish.
 出来るだけ早く現金を!人々は素晴らしいものでさえ早く飽きてしまいます。


Do all this and then we'll talk about your come back. I have a million ideas for you.
But first make some art! You can't get lazy yet! Click on the white square below next to the picture.


さあはやく!あなたはまだ怠け癖がぬけない!
