When I'm drawing, I am working. That is what I do. Yes, I absolutely, positively love it and I can't wait to get back to it. Loving what I do doesn't mean I'm not working. Everyone should be so lucky. Thanks to television and the big screen this long term dedication to my craft seems the opposite of what you think an artist is. I choose this career field. I studied my craft for years. I earned a one year certificate, an Associate degree and then a Bachelors degree in Art. I've dedicated myself to continuing education to build on my existing skill level.
