Anonymous asked: Sorry if this is too invasive, I only ask because I'm a young artist too: do you make a living or a decent amount from your bone work/art? I do similar work and I'm hoping to make at least a bit of my living from my work.
No worries, Anon!
I do fairly well, usually enough to pay the main bills and such but I’m definitely not where I want to be yet. I have other side jobs like working for my parents’ real estate business, helping them rehab houses and such, but a lot of my income does come from shop sales, commissions and the like.
Just be sure to keep at it, Anon. Your perseverance will pay off. And don’t sell yourself short. You put a lot of time and effort in your work and shouldn’t be afraid to ask a price that reflects that. A lot of artists ask too little for their work, hell I know I’m guilty of it too, but just be sure to realize your own worth as a creator and price accordingly. :)
Good luck! And if you feel like it, I’d love to see some of your work some time!
