I think money is a form of reward. But it is not the only kind by far.
Money can also be a bad reward when it causes artists to change their
art for the sole purpose of making money, or what hipsters like to call
"selling out".

If I make some money from my art, then good for me. But if I change my
art for the sake of money, then I would feel like I am doing something
