Freelancing is an option for artists who want to work in the industries of publishing, film, games, etc.  while they build up their patron/collector base. Graphic Designer James Grieg has put together an email course called “Before Going Freelance” that helps you get your head around some of the details of becoming a freelancer. Part of the course is free so check it out.

Many art colleges prepare students for this art career option. You can always send questions my way too if this is something you really want to do as I freelanced as an illustrator for three decades! In a way when you follow the Artist As Brand principles you are aligning yourself with freelancing concepts, but you are building the industry around your self as opposed to relying on other businesses for your income.

But check out Grieg’s class and let me know what you think of it.
