Getting drawing to pay for itself

Kamal once told me it would be nice if this hobby paid for itself. That has been quietly humming in my head and it's starting to slowly make more sense. It would be nice if your hobby could pay for itself wouldn't it?


The last few weeks I've been trying to ferret out small paying assignments for Jammers. Most requirements I find are for graphics, websites and that sort of stuff. Booriiiing! No, i'm looking for assignments that take the jammers natural workflow into consideration. Like location sketching, painting, and drawing as documentation etc.


If you'd like to make some money drawing, please comment below. Also let me know what you'd like to specialise in so I know what to keep an ear out for. Also be reasonably sure your work is pro quality. Breaking hearts is heart breaking.
