The art and designs you create, or something else entirely?

I am a machine operator making piston rings. Sometimes a lot of overtime in a hot factory. While the challenges are interesting, I wish retirement were much closer. At work, the only thing I like more than being asked for help, is being able to actually help them solve their issue. Trying, every time, to teach and not just fix it for them.

Photography and digital art is a hobby I would like to take a little more seriously. maybe this time I won't lose years of work (and play) in one fell swoop.

What's your story?

(The correct answer thingy on this will probably totally arbitrary since there is no wrong answer to a question like this )

My full time job is 3d animation, motion graphics, and shooting/editing. I also do 3d animation and motion graphics freelance. So, my main income AND my side income is all visual arts stuff. Mostly Cinema 4D, After Effects, Premiere Pro, Photoshop, Illustrator, etc.

The minute you depend on your hobby to generate income, it stops being a hobby and becomes a job.
