    celebrity ass double.

    whenever you see Brad Pitts caboose on screen... that's actually mine.

    Yes, there are jobs like that out there.

    I also have this other job where I sit in a cubicle and making people move around in video games.

    You can't fool anyone, Justin. We all know you're a full time car-payer-offer.

    I originally worked in a cafeteria, but they kicked me out the first two days of my training.......
    So now I paint and draw all day for a living...because without art i'd be one hell of a hungry hobo!

    Graphic designer, currently on hold due to alternative civilian service (aka underpayed runner-slave). Constantly out of money. Making websites from time to time to fix those financial holes and to buy expensive technical equipment to feed my ego. I'm looking into getting a job in a video store. Telling people how bad their taste in film is and sorting out granny-porn sounds like a great job.

    F11: What's it like to work in a restaurant? Are you a waiter there, or kitchen personnel? I've always admired waiting students who rush from table to table with loads of dishes on their arms to make a living. I could never do that.

    haha it IS awesome and i speak from 3+ yrs of experience. the downside is that you'll have to life on 5 bucks/hour and that you won't be able to buy expensive technical equipment...

    Yeah, my best friend works in one of those really small video stores which mainly survive from old men buying teen or fetish porn. When I'm visiting her there, I usually help her sort porn (some nice anecdotes to tell). I wouldn't want to work there, because it's really sleazy, but there is another, bigger video store too that I like.

    Concerning the pay, I'm already paid 500 bucks per month for my civilian service, so the video store thing would be an addition. I have too much time on my hands right now (i render my service in a school, which means I pack up work at 1:00 usually) and just making art all day without any social contact turns me into a life-zombie. I'd have time for drawing at the job, very little actual work and hang out with my passion, film. In Germany, you are usually paid on a 400 € basis (income exemption).

    I work as a technical illustrator doing drawings for military manuals. It's all hardness maintenance stuff, showing how things get taken apart and put back together. Dull... dry... I hate it. :<

    I work in a moving firm, relocating people and their stuff from place A to B. Pretty much just carrying heavy stuff around. Today one of my pals dropped a washing machine on my toe..

    I also work as a freelancer concept artist and graphic designer doing stuff from game concepts to cd covers and promo material.

    Uh....I die for a living. No income, no job (not even freelance or completely free work). Draw some of the day and emo the rest. IRC keeps me fulfilled sometimes.

    But moving soon and hope to be running my own business (yes, I'm still doing the coffeehouse) in 2 years or less.

    I was the president and/or CEO of four small advertising agencies/design firms and a graphic designer for 43 years. Now I do shit...which explains why I'm always broke.

    I hope to one day be President of The United States...I mean...I couldn't fuck it up any more than it already is...

    Art Director for a small community newspaper in MA. Been here for 7 years, pay is alright. I usually have to invent ways to be more creative than is really neccessary. Would really like to move out west, start doing Concept Art in some manner.

    I really can't complain about my job, I work in a computer arcade. Its kind of like a cyber cafe, only centered around games. Basically I have to make sure the customers have a good time, I'm here to be their buddy. So if it requires me to play games with them, that's what I do! Only downside is dealing with piles of 20+ kids at a time by myself, after they drink lots o' energy drinks! o.O And of course the drama that comes along with the oh so "professional" gamers. But what can I say? I love the place.

    And then I do this expensive thing called "college." Blarg.

    For those of you who have restaurant jobs: Respect! I did it for 4 years and couldn't take it anymore.. sometimes people can be so unforgiving. Tips for everyone!
