In this article I will cover the pros and cons of being a freelance artist. A freelance artist is one who is self-employed as an independent contractor, as opposed to one who works for a company. Being a freelance artist can be difficult and is often more work than simply working for a company.
For most freelance artists, they must create their own business model. Some only take commissions, while others rely on the sale of their original art or prints. The best model is a combination of both, especially for those just starting out. This article will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of working for yourself as an artist.
