    Minipainting Studio - commission work?

    I know it's not "steady" enough to just jump into but maybe start small, part-time it?

    it's all I got at the moment.

    The obvious thing is that you start your own party! The Überparty! For all Übermench! You could be the Führer of the Übermench!

    Look at your cmon ranking then combine that with your teaching background and make some instructional painting DVD's! Teach the rest of us here a thing or two. The great tutorials scattered across the net are one thing but being able to watch someone do it at your own leisure in the comfort of your living room is another. You could design a course to comprehensively cover everything and I think this would make an excellent project and a very useful final product. For a serious long term job, a musuem with lots of great art sounds quite nice! I went to the Louvre not long ago and had to rush around, but it was easy to see that working there in a similiar capacity would probably be a fantastic job.

    being serious for a moment, there is always educational administration. in addition to working at a school that includes things like working on standardized tests, and governmental oversight (sitting on boards to determine educational material). you could also write books, or work for a company that produced educational material. what, if you dont mind my asking, is your field of expertise (year, subject, etc).

    Why do you hate teaching?

    Maybe you are just at the wrong age group of kids?

    Young students 1-4th grade need positive male role models as teachers, and the kids would be much more enjoyable. At least I think they would.

    They know they aren't right, it's a money game where votes mean prizes.
    On a serious note, with the state of state education in america and other countries such as the UK then a teacher that is prepared to point those faults out, give potential solutions and get on the side of the parents may have a chance. (parents are voters and parties want those votes.)

    I think that you're at a time in your life when you should think very seriously about changing direction. You're single again. Free. Go out there and "find Ubie". You've got a degree and that will help you in anything even if you land in a totally un-related field. Embrace your Ubie-ness and take on the world!

    The thread was locked before so I wasn't able to post this.

    1) Illustrator for a publishing house.
    2) Graphic Designer for an advertising firm
    3) Instructor for adults. Have private lessons in public settings. Baby-boomers pay some nice amount of money for this.
    4) Collegiate instruction. If you can get a university teaching assignment you'll be working with a different kind of student. Might save your sanity.
    5) Private Commissions. Places like zoos, gym's, local businesses, sports teams, conventions, etc. They all need t-shirts, pamphlets, centerpieces, etc designed.
    6) Work in the Paint & Brush (or pastel, ink, chalks, putties, etc) as a consultant or designer. Artists know what other artists need.
    7) With a bit of additional schooling you can Curate a museum.
    8) Art Restoration. This also includes older manuscripts and antique books.

    There's probably a lot more, this is simply what I could think of in 4 minutes.
    Hope this is of some help

    Hi Uberdark You're going to spend the next 30-40-50 years slogging your guts out in order to provide yourself food, shelter & if you're very lucky a bit of sex. What makes you think that you're so special you deserve a job that you enjoy? The fact that you're a human being actually but do you see what I'm saying?

    Life is shite. If it wasn't for this damnable inbuilt survival instinct I'd be long gone. Try to learn to enjoy the pleasant bits of life and if they make up more than 1% of your time, consider yourself lucky, not cursed.

    DO NOT leave your current job until you have a confirmed replacement employment.

    Good luck.

    I'm drunk & unhappy!

    Cheers, B.

    Do you hate teaching or just hate teaching kids? If you were competent in drafting you could get jobs teaching that to vocational college students.

    And I've really really refrained from posting what I wanted to post.

    Well I'd strongly suggest that if you're hating it this much at the start of an acedemic year, that your "Target Audience" are wrong.

    Perhaps consider what vocational education opportunities there are around for Adults.
    Having done some "Adult teaching" it's 'easier' than kids as most adults are there by choice.

    I would steer away from miniature painting as a main source of income, forget about the possibility of hating your hobby.
    First, the global economy will get worse and prices for essentials are going to get higher for two main reason, first,goverments are broke and will tax the shit out of us to try to get themselves out of the shite, second, goverment subsidies of things such as bio fuel and other bad use of food has seen food crops around the world decline, combine that with some nasty storms recently in various large agricultural nations and you have a decrease in the food supply (hence prices increasing and goverments such as russia stopping exports to ensure that it's people will be okay.)

    With all of this you will have even more people doing it on the side, when people paint on the side they generaly don't declare it for tax, you can not compete with people who don't have to factor in tax and it being an income.

    Sell supplies and the occasional painted miniature, I'm not trying to shit on your'e parade mate, just looking out for you as the next few years are going to harsh.
