Quitting Your Day Job

Published on Apr 9, 2015

I recently received an email asking for advice on how one quits their day job and starts an independent career in art. It’s a question I get from time to time, and I thought I’d take a moment today and give some advice to people who are thinking about it.

Kickstarter: Help me Build my Portfolio

EBSQ artist Tabatha Rhodes is running a Kickstarter!

What is an artist without a portfolio to back them up? I am shifting my artistic path and I need your help to rebuild my portfolio.

Tabatha Rhodes Kickstarter

Tabatha Rhodes is taking the plunge! She wants to build a career in art with pet portraits. Will you help her? The campaign is already 96% funded, but there are still 22 days left to take advantage of the great rewards she’s offering.

I’ve chosen the $10 Pledge for a Digital “PetHedz” Portrait of my cat Drusilla:

A digital drawing of your pet or animal of your choice done in my “PetHedz” style delivered to you via e-mail. This will be formatted for printing (think mugs, phone cases, pillows!) or to use on the internet or whatever you want!

I can’t wait! Check out Tabatha’s Kickstarter today! http://kck.st/1Dn5RAI
