I'm a commercial art technology major...it's a 2-year degree. I am also very active as an artist outside of school, and I was just hired a couple months ago to illustrate a children's book.

I want to be a street caricature artist and a comedian.
It just sounds so exciting being a street performer :)

Iv thought about other art jobs like graphic design but thats not me.
I know its not my place cuz It feels like theres no emotion in it.
It does matter but it feels like it wont emotionally impact people.
Concept artists are cool though but I know where Im going.

It just sounds really fun meeting people talking to them and drawing them.
Its exciting and scary not knowing if youll come back home with amazing memories and tons of cash or broke and sad lol.

So far, Im self taught, Itd be nice going to art college or university but its a waste of cash when I could learn experiences and mistakes in the street and learn from it all. No im not dissing people who go to art college or university but Its time to stop delaying my moment by going to more schools and coming to security and comfort zones.

you said teaching yourself didn't count but it does. If you can teach yourself then you have the talent in you naturally. I taught myself but I have been practicing since kindergarden so I had much more practice than most

I'm a graphic designer in a small print shop. It pays ok but it is a lot of fun and I get to design shirts, business cards, flyers, signs, etc. Once in a while I get commissioned to create logos from scratch. My DA doesn't reflect my more professional art :p

Ah, right this second I don't really consider myself working with art, even though I'm in the studio every day. It's a family run art business. So I'm fiddling around with 'the arts' even when I'm not actively working.

I've just kind of been drifting around the last couple years :(

But before that, I did glass professionally (blown and fused) which was pretty fun, I want to start up with that again.

I do digital commissions once in a while, haven't picked one up in a long time.

Yes, to both. I've been a working artist for over ten years, now. I have two Associate's degrees-- one in Fine Art and one in Applied Art for graphic design-- and I'm currently back in school, a year away from my BFA, with intentions to go on to graduate school.

Make sure you take business class and good people skills. That can make you or break you if you can't handle a competitive field. #gaveuponit

Also, location is very important. If you're not financially able to move to go and sell your work and/or get another job on the side, it will not be a walk in the park.

I'm just starting out on a career as a freelance illustrator designer. Slowly picking up work and clients. Thank heavens for parents and the internet until I get enough of a business up I can support myself.

I'm sure once you do a few more works for clients your name will get out there. Once your name name is out there you will have tons of work.

I'm quite glad of the slow start because I have no experience on the business end of things and time management is hard to get right. So it gives me not too many clients and time to get the first few projects sorted and work out what I'm doing.

It's scary because I didn't really... 'do' anything I just said one day "I'm now a freelancer" and now I do that, it's not like starting a job where you have official training and a boss to go to for help if you screw up. It's just you. On bad days I feel like I'm faking it, that I'm not actually good enough, but on good days it's pretty awesome.

I haven't had any other job (other than supermarket work lol) so when I left uni I had a year of trying to find work and failing (even at the supermarket) and thinking "well I'll try freelancing" and it's going quite well. I think I might end up one of those people at 60 who's like "I've never actually had a proper job with a boss and everything..."

It's very fun. I've only done one semester so far, and I've just started my second. It doesn't feel like work though, it's all very interesting.
