What if you’re an artist and want to work from home? You could earn extra money from home as a cartoonist, illustrator, or photographer. Below are some companies offering legit work from home jobs available for artists. You can contribute you skills for pay in a variety of areas: comic strips and panels, columns and political cartoons, book illustrations or photographs, and manga illustrations. (Manga refers to comics that conform to the style developed in Japan by Japanese authors. If you didn’t already know that, you’ll probably want to skip companies that specialize in that.) You may also enjoy using your art for greeting cards.
I haven’t personally worked for the following companies, so this list is based on others’ recommendations. You should do your own research before deciding which company might best work for you. Please check each website to see which companies are accepting submissions and what they require.
