Unfortunately only an very small percentage of us actually make enough cash to support ourselves/families based solely on art-generated income. I've always been kinda curious, what the hell do the rest of us do for a living??

What are your real day/night jobs??

I recently left a job as IT Manager for a small company. I'm looking to get back into front end web development or something more design-related. Being a sysadmin is too bloody boring.

I used to be a sysadmin also. It was either boring as dirt, or you were losing millions of dollars every heart beat the system was down.

Couldn't take it, so I went into Software QA. Transferred all of that knowledge into normal QA where I work on software as part of admining all of these management systems that we have.

So I'm a happy camper now fo sho. Also have my 'batch in IT, a lot of that stuff translated too info me having my own flash-based adventure game that I've been running for a few years now.

You truly never know what you're going to do when you grow up huh? I've also had virtually every fast food, and grocery job at multiple chains... o.O My job list is a mile long. Ugh. Humility is my friend, fo sho.

Went to university for History, Classics and Religion... Try getting a job with THAT. So now I'm in college for Game Development. It's more drawy, but less thinky.

Went to college for Interactive Digital Design, I used to be the graphic artist for a print shop, got laid off.
Went back to college to get another bachelor's in IT.
Can't get hired anywhere locally, got part time job at Gamestop last winter and can't find any better options to switch to.

So I draw comics now as well.

Currently I'm a student studying for a masters in the archaeology of the Classical Mediterranean, but as Limne said, the job market in such a field is practically nonexistant. Especially since my expertise is in Classical Greece, for which there are about 4 jobs in the country outside university teaching, and Greece itself isn't exactly somewhere I expect to find a job right now.

So after I complete my dissertation next month, I'm moving back in with my parents and I'm going to become a freelance proof-reader. I little research, a decent website, some well targetted marketting and a little word of mouth, and hopefully by April I'll be earning enough to support myself, pay my parents some rent, save up for my wedding, and contribute to my fiance's house renovation (it REALLY needs it. There is a hole in the ceiling of the kitchen, the place is filled with junk, and there are certain items of furniture I am not allowed to touch for fear they'll break even more)

Primary school teacher for eleven years now. Doesn't always give me the time I'd like to spend on School Spirit, but it makes up for that by giving me plenty of ideas...
