Art is a wonderful business if you love it. But it is a hard business. The consitance of the business depend on the artist, and the artist depends on inspiration. So if you can build a nice environment for creation, you can get a good business in art (with its ups and downs as any business). If you make a stressful business, the artist wont be able to concentrate in art and the business will go to bankrupt.

If you can produce income from any great piece of art be it either literary, visual, acted on a stage, written into a musical score or choreographed into a ballet--something you can generate income from it has now adopted a 'business-quality' to it. Art is one of the most beautiful business additions !

I'm just a kid so I don't think about making money with my drawing. But truthfully, I never think that art is business. Everyone tells me it's childish, because the artist has to leave too, and making money with art is normal. I don't know, I just think when you choose art as your job, you love it more than you need it for live
