Contrary to popular belief, being an artist/designer is NOT cheap.

You’ll need paints, canvases, sketchbooks, pencils, computers, software, tablets, cameras…the list goes on depending on your chosen medium.

You’d also want to stay on top of your game, so you’ll need to pay for education like art school (if you choose to go that route), online classes, art books, conferences, and workshops. 

And of course you’ll want to earn back your investment, so you need clients. And to get clients, you’ll need some form of marketing. There goes the bill for a domain name, web hosting, website theme, Facebook ads, business cards, exhibit fees….
