Hello DA

I've made the decision that I finally want to make a serious effort in pursuing a career in art.

I've researched various educational paths, what kind of positions there are and it's not looking good at all. So I come to you guys in the hopes that there are some professionals among you that may have a few tips for a hopeful rookie.

I'm definitely planning on getting an education in graphic design, just to have the experience at hand and because it looks good on the resume. Is there anything you could recommend instead or in addition?

Job openings are slim to none, but that won't stop me from throwing out applications left and right.
Meanwhile I'm hoping to start doing a bit of freelance work on the side in my spare time just to get the ball rolling. Do you have any suggestions on how to get started properly? It's one thing to do the odd commission for a friend of a friend once in a while, but I'd like to get out there a little more in the hopes of reaching a larger demographic.
I know this isn't something that happens over night of course, but y'know..steps in the right direction helps.

I do have a good idea about how to price things, with $ per hour + materials and such. But if you have suggestions for that, do share!

And finally, anything really. I have no idea where to start beyond advertising myself wherever I can, so anything even remotely relevant will probably be a big help.

Thank you for your time :)

Resource scarcity is a lie. There would be no poverty if money creation and resource distribution was in the hands of the people. Support a resource based economy to end poverty, starvation, and war. This isn't the hunger games. Humanity doesn't have to kill each other over scraps of food. We just have to take back our planet from the money changers who enforce the rules of artificial scarcity.
