1 Duel jobs? on Mon Dec 14, 2009 3:42 pm

I'm aware this really isn't the right place to talk about job hunting and whatsoever, but...

Is it possible work in one sector of the media (dunno, like filmmaking) while also doing a smaller, side job in another sector of it, for example comic books or art commisions/ or writing? This strikes me, since I've read about a number of things like... Kevin Smith for example making movies, then doing comics based on said films... or Batman... Or John Woo directing a Hard Boiled comic.

Y'know, I'd like to keep my prospects open for when I kick off of college next year and face the big wide, savage, violent and cold world to go into media jobs (If I can even land that). I'm sure filmmakers can multitask...

Well I hope...

Im at college (in teh UK) and still havent chosen exactly where I want to go. I definately want to do Concept Design but also want to do Commission work to the side. It could work.

If you're an artist of the illustrative type (which you could classify yourself as, Cenaris)I don't see why you couldn't have one job while doing commissions or something of the like on the side.

Many artists on FA and DA function this way, few actually live solely off their art. And its not a bad set up (especially if your a part of the fandom, which is 10% artists and 90% Art whores who are willing to to pay to have something drawn for them.)

You have an established income, plus whatever else you make on the side.

It's pretty much like what JJ does, he has a real job (hopefully xD) while he makes some extra money on the side with his drawings (includes pin-ups, sketchbooks, tomes, and aspara). It's quite a good arrangement as far as I can tell, especially when JJ has such a large old and young fanbase.

I think it's also how alot of writers start out too, not all of them become instant best sellers, but rather have day jobs to support their developing career.
