**UPDATE: Thank you to everyone who has submitted an artist! We have received TONS of e-mails with fantastic suggestions for this series. At this point, we have contacted and slated enough artists for our next “season” but still welcome additional submissions for future consideration.

In the meantime, we want to know: Why does this series speak to you? What message or angle would you want this series to share? Let us know in the comments!


MN Original is reviving our monthly video web series, Artist Day Jobs, and we need your help!

Are you an artist (or do you know of one) who works an interesting day job to support your artistic endeavors? Are you a painter who is also a prize-winning dog show handler? Or maybe you’re a choreographer who also farms corn? Or perhaps you’re a photographer who works as a train conductor?

Give us a shout.

Our team is interested in capturing video and photos of artists at work which will be a part of our monthly video series on

If you’re an artist who would like to be featured, or you’d like to nominate someone, send an e-mail to [email protected] with “Artist Day Jobs” in the subject line for consideration.

Stay tuned for the first webisode featuring Get Cryphy DJ Last Word who also works as a commercial pilot.
