Why does it not pay your bills?
As probably most of you on here, I dream of one day paying (most of) my bills with what I love.
I am aware, that my output rate and quality is nowhere near, where it needs to be, in order to stand a chance right now.
However, I wonder, as I read in the blogs, why even the most talented and succesful among you are not able to quit their dayjobs and live off of the money your illustrations make.
I mean, I am amazed by the talent some people on here do have and the following and sales that brings, but at the same time it does not seem to be enough. If I'd sell as many designs as some of y'all seem to do on PoD sites/threadless/younameit, I'd probably be well off and would stop my (currently not existing) job and put my all into designing...
I get excited when I make 10$/month off of reddbubble etc...not complaining - just not understanding.
