Its time I took this art thing seriously

Journal Entry: Sun Mar 2, 2014, 11:49 AM

Okay. So I have gotten to that age where a job is a necessity, no more choice with the deal now. Its barley survive on £60 a month from dad, or get my thumbs out my ass and get a job. And I am doing a CV to find a part time job, but as the title implies I want art to be my job. I would love to be able to tell people, when they ask what I do, that I am an artist, that I work for myself and earn of my skills. I know that its a very tough road to get started on but by the time I'm out of uni I want to be making money selling my art, starting film making, and moving to London. Its pretty ambitious but I reckon I can do it, and  I'm willing to work harder and draw more to make it a reality. But I'm pulling my socks up, I've been looking into commission prices and I charge too low, I can no longer think of this as trying to get someone to buy my art, and more of someone buying my services as an artist. I need to be making a passable amount for the time I put into it. Which is why I'm raising the price of adoptables to  £10 (they take 2 hours to make and £5 is below the minimum wage, not to mention that I'm not just selling an image but a character). And I'm gonna make a commission sheet within the next few days, even if people dont buy anything at all in the first month or three, I'm going to charge a rate that's right for me and how much time I spend on commissions (which is averaging 6/7 hours per piece with only one character). And I'm sorry if this is irritating to some deviants but like I said, I'm trying to start earning money. I have stuff I need to pay for and future endeavours to save up for. Its time I take this art game seriously.

That's all for now.
