I would argue that musicians have a much harder time of it than comic artists, but that's just because I'm an embittered failed musician ;) Love the image you used here to illustrate your point, and I'll check out Betty and the Boy later!
I'll have to check out that band! :D
Mmm hmm my brother is a musician and I draw comics. It's kind of like we are having a staring contest "who will it be, who will make it!" Luckily he just got a label putting out a tape (yes, a tape, hee) in November. :) So that's pretty awesome--I just have to keep on trucking for now :]
Listened to a few of their tunes..."Pennies" is great!
