    non art job

    I want to know what job do you do or have in your daily life when you are not making art. Could you tell me?

    Office jobs, wait service jobs, phone jobs, IT jobs.. all sorts of jobs... but not the of the hand variety. I have my dignity.
    My commentary is a gift to you.

    So, no hand jobs, blow jobs, nose jobs, boob jobs, or anything else as politician?

    I work part time (~20 hours, more if I want to) in an office. I have worked as a waiter, tutor, research assistant and in various other desk jobs in the past. I also occasionally do translations as a freelancer.

    Oh no.. see.. you got it all wrong. Politicians get other.. peasants.. to do those 'jobs' while reaping the benefits. I would be sooooooooo happy if I was a politician.

    I manage all the super evil organizations across the globe, part-time, obviously.

    translations? what languages do you know? I know some languages and was planning also to work on translations as freelancer to get extra money. Maybe my idea is not wrong after all.

    I primarily translate English to German. Getting steady work in that field is difficult here unless you have a certificate (which in turn is very hard to get). I get those jobs primarily because of contacts I have within a big IT advisory firm.

    art store jobs are okay, you get access to free or discounted supplies, etc. money isn't that great though.
    I worked in electronics manufacturing and construction until I could get a production art gig. At the time those industries paid well and had good benefits which let me paint in the evenings and on weekends. What you don't want is a job that requires too much of your time, better to be a boring security guard somewhere than working doing something that requires more than 40 hours a week and leaves you no time for art practice.

    You're right, we should all be able to have time for art.
