I found this great article from a few years ago explaining different artists and their attempts to use their art as a means of work. There is a heavy emphasis on marketing your talents online through stores and blogs. One of the specific examples, Claudine Hellmuth, talks about how liscensing her work paid off better than custom creations since she only had a set amount of time to create her art.
Also, there are mentions of various art schools that offer minors in art business to their students. The most surprising entrepreneurial idea I found when reading this article was and idea from a student named Tristan Hummel. He started showing artist's work on the El trains in Chicago.
