Indie artists, how do you fund? 

Question for all the working artist on here, how do you fund your new albums, art work, equipment, nail polish, tampons, hookers, blow, etc....?
Is it purely through gigs and or students? Or through other sources?

I think indie is about DIY. Learning your tools and making use of what you have with very little investment (if any).

Maybe what you mean is independant as in "not having a record label's support" and following the "you pay for the studio" route.

I'm a full time working stiff but most my artist friends have little side gigs like interpreting, bar tending, uber etc.....

Everyone has side jobs, even if they are hesitant to admit it. However, the main thing about self-funding is being smart about spending. I admit it blows my mind that people pour thousands of dollars into recording an album when the cost of a good studio including a computer and necessary programs is maybe ~$2,000, it is relatively easy to figure out mixing/mastering for solo guitar, and CD duplication can cost less than a $1 for a CD. Costs end up being recouped fairly quickly with CD sales and performances... at least, that's been my experience.
