I am an artist — cartoon art and pop art.
I do not live in an art and music scene kind of town. I live in a suburb that has a mixed culture and even before the 2 “new” ethnic groups moved in, this was not an art and music scene kind of town.
Where do you suggest I find clients — real clients — the client that will come aboard and be a real paying customer and on the roster for good — and the ones who will pay real money for a project done by me?
Civiilans would result in perhaps a $200 a shot project and they’d only come to get that project done only. Maybe I could get $500 tops for a project but that depends on what they are asking for.
Civilians are welcome, yeah — I am guessing that I could make a pretty penny in the “nostalgia” part of the company. There are tons of people who want a neat anniversary gift or something for a baby shower or something sentimental.
An etsy shop won’t do. For what I want to do, I need a roster of clients.
How to get the clients is another story. There are also not that many companies left in our town and the ones that are here don’t have a use for the services I am providing.
I am trying to save the farm here; counting the time I was employed, don’t even ask how long it is now I have been looking for gainful employment. What happened 2 weeks ago with that steno thing made me sick.
