Basically I'm a student and my lifestyle is too busy and lacking the transportation for a part-time regular job. I want to do something I'm good at, but from home. Where I can be my own 'boss' to make some money on the side, which I desperately need. I used to be a good artist, but I had stopped doing that. Now I want to revive it to make money for when I move.

Would it be haram if I had to make art to make a living?

    The basic ruling for producing or selling art should be on this site already (see e.g. here for drawing and photography), so the only new question here is probably whether your situation amounts to darura (= "necessity"). My guess is that it probably doesn't, but I don't know enough about this to answer.

  • its permissible to do abstract art (no people/animals i.e. things with souls) so do that in sha Allah like skies etc.
