How to make money with DT-1

posted on 12th of november, 2008

I'm a freelance illustrator. Illustration is not just a hobby for me, it's a job. I'm used to have clients who want this, that, and that one. Clients that have ideas, but not clear ideas, and your due is to find something in their mind and put it on paper. And after each project, you have to find another client with another idea... Very tiring...
This was my job before DT. Today I'm thinking about saving all the money I use to promote my freelance work and finding clients. I'm considering the idea of working full-time for DT. Working for DT is PURE FREEDOM. I love it.
So I'm trying to be an active part of the community.
And I think I can give some suggestion for all the illustrators that want to make money with DT.

1 - Make it with dedication and enthusiasm.
DT doesn't give you tomorrow-deadlines....
