Yesterday me and Ally Bradley of the lovely Kiss Me Cakes went to a business event morning. I have to say that although some points were helpful it didn't fill me with hope and enthusiasm, quite the opposite in fact.
I am finding more and more that It is so hard to justify to people that working as an artist is a viable business..I have no illusions that it will be really really hard but I have to believe that one day I can call myself a professional illustrator and that my work can support me..
Have any of you felt disheartened when trying to make a living with your arts or crafts?
Sorry for the rather melancholy tone to this post! Up beat ones will resume, after all I have many many things to be thankful for!
Thanks for reading xoxo
