Dumit Estévez's work is a devotional guide taking an artist or "pilgrim" on a journey, undertaken "for art's sake." This witty commentary on the obstacles faced by contemporary artists provides inspirational guidelines and budgetary considerations, as well as suggestions for "blessings," "props," and "penances."
