    What's your non-art job?

    Was just wondering what those of you who aren't making money with your art make your money doing?

    I just started a job as a mover...

    I think this thread already exists somewhere else.

    I've been driving a blind piano tuner, making 9 bucks an hour, free gas and free lunch. I'll be starting an internship in three weeks at either a big evil design firm or this studio that does toy package illustration.

    That's sounds more up my alley, because I like lifting heavy things. Do you only have to move packages, or do you also need to help pack and unpack small things?

    Computer programmer here. Currently doing business applications in python and a few other technologies. Did Java for a while too and a lot of web development.

    I only ever wanted to be in computers so I could make video games...that didn't happen. Time to try doing something I love.

    well, i'm only 2 days in so far, and the only thing I've had to pack was 1 woredrobe box (clothes), and that took about..5 minutes, max. We drive to the place, load boxes onto the truck, load furniture on the truck, go to the new place, unload the furniture, unload the boxes, and then done. The people have bought lunch both times (nice perk) and i guess since its becoming summer the work is really starting to pick up. I see you are in Washington, I'm working in Kent, near Renton...if you want more info PM me.

    i manage tech support for a vis-sim company. not super glam or anything but as close to computer graphics as i could get.

    managing sucks, but it buys decent art supplies.

    This is "Game World Navigator".

    The site is: www.gamenavigator.ru But it is in russian and if you like to read I would recommend to use some on-line translater like that: http://www.online-translator.com/default.asp?lang=en
