Is it worth studying animation and start working from scratch in that or keep going with the web design?

Question by Adi: Is it worth studying animation and start working from scratch in that or keep going with the web design?
I used to work as a web/graphic designer and I was very good at it, but I was always very interested in animation. So, I left my work and start studying animation but I was told that there are more jobs opportunities in web design and it is more stable work, as fare as work place instead of contracts, can someone in light the subject? Is it worth studying animation and start working from scratch in that or keep going with the web design?

why not both? Keep going with the one from which you can generate viable income NOW, and as time allows work on the other one and develop it into a part time paying gig. I did this with writing and eventually got to do that for 15 years freelance (self employed) at home!

I think animation is great and it ties into your computer interests. Get involved with some boards / sites where animation is posted, compared, sold, etc. (I’m thinking like Daz), so you can build an audience, still have fun, and hopefully achieve success.

While in the Netherlands, if in Amsterdam, go to the Rijks Museum for sure…it houses the great Dutch masters and definately go to the VanGogh museum. If you are in France go to the Maeght Foundation in Saint-Paul, France…there you will see a unique gathering of Giacomettis, Miro, Chagall, Calder, Leger…and while your in Saint-Paul France you will be close to Nice and Monaco! (southern France)… the zip for Saint Paul France where Foundation Maeght is located is 06570 and the web for the Maeght is http://www.fondation-maeght.com/
