My favorite pastime is drawing airplanes. I’ve loved airplanes, and all things aviation, since my dad bought me my first scale airplane model kit, and the enjoyment of recreating classic airplanes never left me.
Fast-forward quite a few years, and now I operate a growing online aviation art business. It’s still small, but I do earn royalties from my aircraft illustrations on a daily basis.
My most popular selling images are those of fighters flown by Tuskegee Airmen, and E-3 Sentry AWACS (which I flew on, as a Mission Crew Commander).
My advice to you: Consider the sale of digital products as part of your plan. With a little research, and consistent offerings, you can find your niche, and scale your business with very little start-up cost.
I’ll be posting more on this topic soon.
