What are some high-paying jobs for artists?

Serious answers please. I really love doing art and I do want to pursue in art. But most art jobs aren't that high paying, but which ones are for artistic and creative people?

    There's a reason most artists believe in the advice of "Follow your dreams, but don't give up your day job". I've know a few artists in my decades, and most have to work jobs outside of the arts to pay the bills.

    get a college degree in "graphic arts". there are million of printers, publishers, magazines, and news journals or newspapers  who use graphic-arts all of the time.

    plus, you need to be able to use the computer for those graphic arts.

    Have you ever heard the tern "starving artists"?? There's a reason for that. Friend of mine took art in college. Today he works for the state government & paints in his spare time. He's pretty good. I have some of his painting on my walls. But he was never able to make a living with his art.

    There really aren't any. You should not expect to get out of college or arts school after majoring in any kind of art and get a high paying job. That's pie in the sky. Sorry. That's just the way it is - whether it's right or wrong. Someone who goes to a trade school for 2 years and learns how to fix appliances will outearn an art school grad and at the same time have a fraction of the educational debt. My new neighbor is not yet 30 and just bought a $350,000 house. He has an HVAC company. He has a new, big, shiny pickup, a boat and a classic car too - plus two kids.

    Fast food, in comparison to what most artists make from their art, is good pay.

    Commission work can be high paying, but that means you already have to have established yourself as an artist.
