Other ways to make money off art
http://www.zazzle.com -- takes your digital work and handles the printing, the billing, the accounting, the shipping. A bit more involved than other places, it does framing and matting, too. Clothing, cards, posters, etc. It's free to start a gallery, and you get 10%. They set the prices. People say it's high quality prints and shirts. http://www.cafepress.com is similar to zazzle but I believe you set your own prices (they set a minimum), and you get a profit above the set amount or something. Free to set up. http://www.deviantprints.com I think may be just prints. Last I checked there was a fee for setting up, around $25. This is an expensive option. It's $99 for the year. It's mostly prints, but it does mouse pads, mugs, tshirts, puzzles, etc. It's smugmug, and you get a gallery that you can hotlink to, and you can upload video and other stuff. $99 is for the pro account. On any account (they start at $30) you can order prints for yourself, if you want them to sell for you, you have to pay the pro account fee. http://www.smugmug.com/?referrer=25k5OV4TlGnq2 is the link, with referral, and that gets you $5 off. If you want to see a gallery in action there, they have samples or mine, annmariehughes.com is on it. But that's an expensive option, I'd imagine if you're broke, Zazzle or Cafepress are your best options, no risk, no money laid out. Hope this helps, I know we've had posts here about earning money with writing, hopefully these art ones work, too. And with the art ones, especially zazzle and cafepress, if you have a clever catchphrase or cartoon or whatever, you can sell those too. And of course if people have other ways to make money thru their art, do let me know!
