How to Make Money as a Freelance Artist
You’re intelligent, creative, and talented. You did everything right in art school. But you cannot seem to make any money with that talent...
Do you have to drown in debt to do creative work?
Do you need to starve to cultivate talent?
Can you only pursue interesting things at the expense of making money?
Maybe you’re thinking, “I knew it. Mom knew this would happen. There’s a reason ‘starving artist’ is such a cliche.” Maybe you’re not good enough? Or there are already too many artists out there?
So let’s get this out of the way right now:
The stereotype of the starving artist just isn’t true.
Art school taught you art. It taught you design. In fact, it trained you so well you assumed it’s enough to be very good.
You know where much of the prototype of the starving artist comes from? Art school. It taught you art, but not what to do with it. The business side of it. The part that makes you money.
Extremely dangerous. You can spend all your life training to be the best artist in the world and never make any money."I found the offering to be clear, concise, and very honest about the “job” of being a freelance artist. There is a ton of information that will help you go from “aspire” to “hired”
This is 5 hours of content that contains some of the most honest appraisals about what it takes to make a career for yourself—it clearly lays out the challenges, and provides ideas for overcoming those hurdles. This is priceless information!" Jon Schindehette (Senior Creative Director at Wizards of the Coast)
But not because people won’t pay for it.
Yes, people value art. You can make a living off yours. Fact is your talent is very valuable to certain people.
What is NOT a fact is that if you build it, they will come. You need to find “them.” Then you need to sell it to them. Selling may not come naturally to you. (It rarely does for anyone) Now the good news is...
You can learn how
Can you imagine the sheer relief from paying off your student loans? How about the wonder of traveling overseas for three months? Wanna do that while pursuing your art?
In other words, do you want to live the artist’s dream?
Noah Bradley thought so too. So that’s what he did. Oh, also because he never wanted to be a starving artist.
You want to prove to everybody - and to yourself - that you were right all along:
It is possible to make money as an artist.
You did not waste your talent and all that potential doing useless things.
People do value (and pay for) your craft.
You can and you will. And you can probably figure it all out yourself in a few years…
What’s that? You don’t have “a few years?”
Then you’ve come to the right place. Got a guy you should meet if you want a “just right” expert to hold your hand and guide you to freelancing success. “Just right” because…
That an artist is good doesn’t mean he can teach.
You know how the better experts are, the suckier they teach? ‘Cause they’ve been doing it so long, they’ve forgotten what it’s like to be a clueless beginner.
So Noah, he’s a “just right” expert. He’s had a successful freelance business for over 5 years. Just enough so you know he didn’t just get lucky. But isn’t such a pro he’s forgotten how horrible it feels at first, trying to break into the industry.
I emphasize this because there are so many experts teaching beginners, but who have completely forgotten what it’s like to be one. So it becomes a brain dump. Full of useful but overwhelming information. And completely useless for you.
This isn’t one of those.
So if you say thanks but no thanks to being a “starving artist”...
Here’s everything you should’ve learned in art school
It’s the ONE class not offered in Art School that would’ve made it profitable."We thought that with hard work and persistence we would be exceptions to the rule, but we received little guidance in how to apply ourselves to the business side of illustration. Noah’s lecture provided a more effective rundown of freelancing basics than four years of art school." - Aldo Katayanagi, Illustrator
The Art of Freelancing is just like a full class in art school. But it’s online so you can learn in bed. In pajamas. It will teach you how to turn your talent into a profitable career. It’s your answer to, “I know all this stuff. Great! What do I do next?”
It contains everything you need. Starting from the very beginning… What exactly is freelancing?
So what exactly does it contain? For starters, it’s 5 hours of lectures and stories in video. You get answers and clarity to everything you kinda knew you need, but had no idea how to learn, such as:
What is freelancing?
How do you know if you’re ready?
How do you break into the industry?
How much should you charge?
What should I put in my portfolio?
Should I work for free?
They also contain the essential “you don’t know you don’t know” stuff. You need to know these. They will boost your confidence and help you avoid mistakes (sometimes costly and heartbreaking), like:
How do I deal with bad clients?
Do I need a contract?
What if my client doesn't pay?
How do I start networking?
As if that weren’t enough, you also get a continually updated and extensive list of resources (books, websites, trainings) about freelancing and art.
Imagine having a question and knowing exactly where to find the answer. This is priceless. I’m sure you’ve experienced expecting to spend 20 minutes googling for an answer and realized it’s harder than you thought. Before you know it, you’ve wasted a whole day. Time is essential.
And for a freelancer, it’s money.
Who this is for
Maybe you’re already pro artist but have no idea how to make money off it. Maybe you’re only starting out but like Noah, you want to be prepared with business. Or maybe you’ve already tried some stuff, got overwhelmed, and decided it’s too hard.

Here's what will happen once you do that, you’ll be taken to a checkout page where you enter your credit card details. Then you’ll be taken to a page where you instantly download the training.

You’ve got the chops. Now it’s time to make some money.
So how much does this cost? Asininely inexpensive.
Most “make money online” courses cost an upward of $97 right up to $299 or even more. And the less expensive ones… Let’s not even talk about them. If you’ve tried some, you know what I mean.
Because Noah suspects you’ve already spent a ton on Art School (Four years at RISD would have cost $245,816)... You can get The Art of Freelancing for only $57. For the value, this is ridiculously cheap.
Here’s what people, previous clueless about selling their services, say about the course:When you add up the video plus the awesome and inspiring community that has built around it, The Art of Freelancing has been by far the best investment I’ve made for my career - Scott Porembski
I landed a design gig shortly after purchasing The Art of Freelancing and when asked for a quote I multiplied my old rate by six! It was scary, I was sure the client would simply vanish and never talk to me again, but, to my surprise, she happily accepted and we ended up having a great time working on a project that we are both very proud of now. - Holly Wade
I am a graduate from the Savannah College of Art and Design, and I thought having a shiny BFA would just lend me a job at Nickelodeon studios. But, that’s not the case, there are things I still didn’t know that I needed to do in order to get noticed.
My freelance business is just starting, but I’ve already made my money back from this seminar almost 10 times over.
Buy the seminar, make some art, and never work a crappy part time job ever again - Michael Kephart
What’s separates you from Scott, Holly, and Michael?
Is it talent? Skill? Hard work?
No, it’s getting a clear and straightforward blueprint on how to position those assets as value for others. And making money off it. It’s that simple.
Because all the proceeds go to charity, you get everything you need to make a good living doing what you love for only $19.75. That’s ⅓ what everyone else has to pay.
But only if you act fast. After December 22, this will be off GiveGetWin and available only from Noah’s site for $57. Still a good value. But why delay and be like everyone else?
Why get it for $57… When you can have it for a third of the price? Get this now for only 19.75. Until December 22.
