Art doesn't pay.
As a designer and illustrator, I have explored many avenues to make it pay, using all of my creative ingenuity. But at this late stage of my life, I have to admit, I'm scraping together a living. And there are lots of things I don't have that other people take for granted. Still, I don't feel I didn't act in my best interests.
I drew a short straw, but I know that I'm good at what I do. I have many skills: drawing skills, painting skills, digital skills. And I continue to build on these skills in the ever-longer gaps between work gigs.
I'm getting old. People see my white hair and think, "oh-oh! She won't know what she's doing". Yet, when I do get work, people are happy with my results, although I often have to explain what is possible and what isn't.
