CERF is a wonderful organization that helps artist’s around the world. They recently published an article providing information about artists’ income. I thought this was pretty interesting.
My friend, Grass, told me to organize my week in this way: find an item that you can make repeatedly (like mugs), make them three days a week; make work that feeds your soul on the fourth day; make appointments to sell the repeatable item on the Fifth Day and follow through on those appointments, never shirking responsibilities related to them; and try to take two days off for family and home. He promised me that if I kept on that path, I would make it financially as an artist.
What I have found over time, is that it is very hard to be disciplined. Let me know if you think this article is accurate.
