I'm an artist--painting, photography, drawing, etc.--and Im trying to find a career involved with art. But other than simply "painter" or other vague terms like that I can't find any. Any suggestions? :)

you could be a wedding photographer, but you will have to travel a lot or a photagrapher for those little photo places in walmart. that's all i can think of i'm not into painting in drawing so i wouldn't know about that stuff:)

Weddings.... *cringes* too much responsibility. That's one day you don't want to ruin... Or it will be your LAST.

Well, there's book illustrator. But I guess that depends on what kind of art you do. If you are more interested in photography, there's a ton of jobs like that- wildlife photographer, mall-family-picture kind of photographer, paparazzi :), etc.
Hmm. There are art jobs out there. If you are an excellent artist, after going to art school, you could open your own art studio, and teach other people. That's what my art teacher did. Or if you don't want to open your own, you could work at someone else's. If you're not the teaching type, there are other options. Fashion designer is one, though it might not be your thing. Finally, you could have another job ( like working at Barnes and Noble, for an example) and pursue your art in your free time. You could sell it locally, and work your way up. Maybe eventually you'd have enough money to open a studio or gallery. Hope this helps.
