I went to Keycon this weekend. Their artist Guest of Honour was Ian Sokolowski, I attended his panel and he gave some excellent advice. The one I'm working on now is "Post updates of your art once a week on every social media site you can even if their works in progress". That's actually a lot of work and I have 3 other jobs. And that's exactly why you see so many talented artist make little to no money off their work. Not only do you have to be a good artist, you also need to market the poop out of yourself. So if you want to be an artist who make money off their work, you need another job (otherwise you will starve), schedule time for art and time for marketing and with luck something will come from it. I like working in child care, that's my main job but if I could make an extra $100 per month off art that would be swell.
So each monday I will try to post an update on the following sites:
