I would like nothing better in life than to sit and do this every day, the sheer joy of is incredible and fills me with a sense of well being and purpose.  The challenge is turning part time into making enterprise, something which isn’t easy.  The truth of the matter is though that there are now more people ‘living the ’ and making from , drawing and otherwise creating content than at any other time in history.  The internet has opened up a whole new avenue and that avenue is spreading back to impact more traditional media, the days of self-publication have very definitely arrived.

This freedom to create which has been handed to so many people does of course give rise to the creation of a whole wealth of total crap, but some gems are really starting to shine through, the world of webcomics seems to be the most advanced of the new breed with many turning their comic into a full-time job.  Quite apart from the prolific (and the rest of the Blind Ferret team) over at www..com many others are making their mark and making their living in this new world.  Where the webcomics guys seem to have got right is by not limiting themselves, they are not only producing collections of the work they’ve presented on the web they’ve also expanded  into prints, T-shirts, figurines and even shot glasses.

So how do those of us with little in the way of artistic talent make use of these potential new making avenues?  The phrase ‘you have to spend to make ’ may come into play here, once you’ve established your as worth peoples attention you can spend a bit of cash getting a talented artist to create a few T-shirt designs for you.  If your fiction a few posters of your main characters may sell well.

The important thing is that there is no better time than now to try and make your artistic dreams come true, I’m certainly going to be trying over the next few months to make happen for me, whether that involves a whole load of or just some damn good only time will tell.

JosiahB is a mid-twenties from just north of London, his credits outside of this site are pratically non-existent (a problem he intends to resolve in the next few months).

His current projects are a series of articles on the various challenges inherent in turning from half arsed in to making side project, a novel based on the experiences of a number of support professionals, and an incredibly secret third project which may even be hiding from his own brain.
