Okee. I've gone to colege, my art doesn't suck, I have a pro website now... Now what the hell... I'm totally lost here. I was working at an anmation company, but it didnt work out.. (I dont think I wanted to be an animator anyway)
I think illustrating would be nice. I'e illustrated a couple books, but I really want to use my style fully. (Not that children designs arent fun)
Do I need an agent? Does anyone know any? I'm banging my head against a brick wall here.

I met some people who are Magic Card artists once. That would be a pretty cool job! Then I could tell all my friends I sort of knew the artist :D
Actualy, I was referring to the D&D stuff. Haven't been paying attention to Magic recently. Man, the best illustrations on any of their products ever were their early Planescape material which was 90% done by DiTerlizzi.
Numbermind: Only if you're an asshole like you.
Yes, I am an asshole, but that doesn't change the fact that nobody's going to get their dream job without some kind of sacrifice or nepotism. That isn't to say you can't work towards your dream while you're working a shit job-- in fact that's ideal. It's sensible, it'll pay off in the long run, and you learn more about managing your time.
If you keep hacking away at some ridiculous goal that's also what you're depending on to pay the bills, then you're only going to get screwed in the end. You'll get angry and frustrated over money, and you're going to resent what you thought you could do so well. Your "art" would become a chore.
This is the way the world works.
