PASSIVE INCOME for Artists – Is it worth it? my Society6 earnings & closing my Etsy Shop

Wondering about selling your artwork or illustration online in 2020? for sure you thought about generating passive income as an artist or illustrator. So in today’s video, I will be showing exactly how much I earned selling my artwork on Society6, the pros, and cons of selling there, my experience with it (honest opinion), Society6 vs Etsy, and more.

I also talk about some alternatives that worked for me, like my experience moving to sell my art prints, illustration, and stickers on my Etsy shop and what lead me to later opened my own online store using Squarespace, consolidating my online shop, my illustration portfolio, and my blog into one roof.
