Services like RedBubble let you upload your artwork images for people to buy online as prints. RedBubble charges a base price for each type of print they offer, and you can then decide on a markup percentage, which you get to keep whenever a print is sold. All orders and shipping are handled by RedBubble, so once your image is uploaded you literally don’t have to do a thing.

I was recently looking at Dina Rodriguez (who I still need to set up our interview together. haha, I’ve been too busy) and Syd Weiler (who I’m convinced is made of pure illustrative magic.) who have both set up shop on Patreon. They both make whatever they want to support their community, and the community supports them back to get access to the resources they’re creating.

Today, if you're at all serious about succeeding in any endeavor, whether online or offline, you have to deliver enormous amounts of value.

The advantage of using these stock art websites is that you do not have to work very hard in the promoting your work. These websites see traffic to the tunes of hundreds of thousands of visitors every day. So your work has a very good chance of being discovered on a daily basis. Remember to keep building your portfolio as this has a direct influence on the amount of money that you earn. The larger portfolio the more income you are liable to make from your artwork.
The gist of this whole thing goes like this: UX designers, web designers, app developers and more are always looking for little icons to use in their work. Pull out your smartphone real quick and open up pretty much anything. If there’s an icon in the app that’s used to indicate a menu, option, button, or whatever, then somebody needed to design that icon. And sure, you can find icons all over the place to use, but since other designers are already using them, it gets pretty boring.Nobody wants to use the same thing as everybody else, so they look for alternatives — you know, like hand drawn icons. Plus, other drawings and illustrations can be turned into website assets, and even your handwriting can become a font. That means pretty much everything that you’re sketching onto that scrap piece of paper can be turned into something that can make you some extra money. And who doesn’t like making money for doing something they love?
With campaigns, there is no risk and no inventory. You design the t-shirts, set the price, add a description, and set your goal.

When your campaign in over, your customers will receive their shirts, and you'll receive a nice check (or PayPal deposit) with the profits.
Let me start by saying that Vincent knows his stuff when it comes to art, drawing and sketching. His online platform and drawing portfolio is quite impressive and he's done many very nice looking sketches. It's obvious he loves creating works of art for others to enjoy. He hits the nail on the head with the demand for his subject matter as well. Making his work personal to his customers is key and a great way to maintain consistent interest and sales. Personalized subject matter like parents, grandparents, children and pets are perfect! Let me be clear that this book isn't about drawing, sketching techniques, method and tools but really about the business side and how to profit and potentially make a living from your art work.
Having said that, there are plenty of ways of putting your graphic design chops and computer savvy to good use that will help to supplement your income. How do I know this? Well, as the headline suggests, I've been doing exactly that for years. Some of the things I've tried have brought in a dribble of pocket money, and a couple have brought in a significant additional income.
Marc Johns is an artist. I’ve been following his work for over a year now. His drawings have been described as “badass whimsy”. They’re funny and deep, which is a unique combination. He articulates the things that people think, but don’t say. For example, one of his pieces is a giant starburst shape with the words “I don’t really know what I’m doing” written inside. Quirky and simple, but knowing.

Research other listings in your city on AirBnB and see what the going rate is for a place like yours. You could also just rent out a private room as well or even a bed in a shared room. In fact, that's how AirBnB got its start. However, you might find it hard in the beginning without reviews, but as long as you take really good care of your guests and provide a lot of value, the reviews will eventually come rolling in.
The sites must already have members or no one will join – This is the big problem in this niche; no one is going to join a site that doesn’t already have members. You can’t just throw up a new Website and say, “This is a dating site. Come join” if there’s no one already there. People join dating sites to meet people and they’re not going to meet people if there’s no one there to meet. I can show you how to avoid this problem as well.
