    So how many of you are artistic whether it'd be music, painting, photography or even making films.
    I'm assuming you'd be underground since what I'm really trying to ask is how many of you are able to still be active in doing your art even when you don't necessarily make money of it?
    Nowadays, it could be an expensive hobby.
    Do you still find it worthwhile? Has money gotten in the way of your artistic aspirations?

    I like making music, specifically playing guitar and singing. Lucky for me, one of my friends owns a bar and theres a small stage with three chairs and two guitars so I perform in there whenever I want!
    I love photography, specially landscapes.
    About the money thing... I take this as hobbies and I'm still 19 y/o so my parents support me and buy me pretty much everything i need. Boy am I lucky...

    Im a filmmaker. I don't have any problems making a living at it. The hardest part is having to put off your own projects to work on paying projects until you find funding.

    I crochet, don't know if you would consider that art but I do. I can make some money on it depending on what I make. Scarfs/hats seem to be doing good at the moment.

    I'm a Fine Arts gradutate and next summer a Graphic Design graduate, I can't wait. I try to touch various medium but I'm more of a drawing guy.

    I'd really love to learn to play piano too but I never could manage to read music right.
