Since you are posting right here.
The answer to your question is probably.. right here.
I'm sure there are some good artists willing to take on a job right now.

You could also steal some artists from over at GMC, tell them you have a non-gamemaker game needing graphics. That'd turn some heads here xD

What are your favorite games? I'd check the credits of a game with graphics I like, see who the artist is and then search for their portfolio online. You'll have a better chance on landing an artist working with an indie studio, because usually artists at larger studios are over worked and have little time as a result.

I'd stay away from sites like Freelancer.com. Artists that bid on these sites underbid one another and are desperate for money. The site itself probably takes a chunk of that money. It's not healthy.

As long as the final result is good, I don't see a problem there.
Everybody needs to eat.
In order for an artist to become popular and charge more, he/she needs to work to build a nice portfolio.

I don't deny that a portfolio is essential for any designer.
But I don't believe that doing every freelance job that comes towards you will let you charge people more.

Quality is always superior to quantity and Variety is vital.
Personal works are better additions to portfolios in a lot of cases.

So to add on to your comparison of food to jobs.

Eating well helps you become popular and charge more.
