How Much Does A Cartoonist Make? | Creative Cash Ep. 1

Believe it or not, there are actually some people who make a living drawing comic books and graphic novels. Rosemary Valero-O’Connell is one of the lucky few who does, and she’s only 22-years-old.

Rosemary received her B.F.A. in comic art from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design and she currently lives in Minnesota, self-publishing her books while also working as a freelance artist.

Valero-O’Connell talks to VICE News about money, being an artist in Minneapolis, and how she balances her health with the need to make a living.
