Belling The Cat by meluseena Belling The Cat by meluseena
'Belling the cat' was one childhood fable that intrigued me growing up. I wanted to draw my own take on it...
Here's a link to the info about the actual fable, should you be curious as a cat about it now.. ;)

I loved your work when I first saw it on Etsy!!! My favourite was "The Moth and the Moon", your work is really inspiring :)

I was curious actually, I noticed your work has made it from etsy into shops all over the place and I'm a young artist and want to sell my art but wasn't sure if it would be an easy career. How hard was it for you to make it big in the industry and do you have any words of advice for a young artist trying to make it herself? I plan to start by selling on etsy.

I run a blog with regularly posted tips about the industry if you're interested.

I short, no it is absolutely not an easy career. Want an easy career? Learn a trade like plumbing or electricty or car mechanics. You will be making money all your life.

One tip I would give you if you're a young artist? Don't waste your time with art school/college unless it's absolutely free or you have a rich supporter. It won't do anything but delay your entrance into the art world, which you have to figure out all by yourself anyways as art school doesn't actually result in art jobs in any other way.

Oh well I was actually planning on going to University to study fine arts so I could become an art teacher or gallery curator, are you saying the knowledge and social gain is pointless? I'm just curious, all the artists I've researched have taken a further education when given the opportunity. I'm very curious as to what your opinion is on this.

If you want to teach art in a school or curate in a gallery, where your credentials will be needed then yes you will need a related college degree. Same as you'd need a law degree to work with a law firm.

If it's to work as an artist in the art field, then in my opinion yes it's pointless. And this is the reason for which most students go to art school - to 'learn how to be an artist'. 

My own experience, opinion and observation.
