15 year old artist, need money!

Hello, I'm 15 years old and I am very good at drawing and painting.

But, I really need some money right now, and I thought using my artistic talent would be a great place to start.

I have considered handing out pet-portrait flyers around the neighborhood for $20 each.

Is there a better way to make more money? I can't drive, so preferably in the neighborhood or online.

Thank you.

I think handing out pet-portrait flyers is a great idea! A lot people seem to sell their creative work online and do commissioned projects for friends. If you don't have one already, I would make a webpage or account on a site like deviantart to show off your work on.

In the meantime, it is probably faster to make some money doing odd jobs for people around the neighbourhood: babysitting, raking leaves, painting trim etc. If your parents are game, ask them if they'll pay you for any household projects that need to be done. I don't know how much money you need, but you can at least make a little this way while you are looking for people to buy your artwork. Good luck!
