Can I earn a living from my vector art?

I’ve been trying to think of ways to increase my income from my illustration & blogs & other creative stuff. I came across this site. What a great idea to generate traffic and to increase revenue from google adsense.
Then my creative juice started flowing, and did more research on the web. There are so many sites where you can sell your illustration and photos on the web. Apparently it is called microstock sites and they pay you each time your illustration / photos get sold!
Here are some blogs that have really great tips on how to make money from vector art and comparison of different microstock sites:

http://sellinggraphics.com/4/Best-microstock-sites-selling-photos-illustrations

So I prepared a vector art and then chose one site recommended by the above blogs, but have already encountered obstacles. You need to provide many samples (like 10) and also need to email a scan of your ID like passport & drivers license…OMG are you kidding me!? That’s so much work for me and also I don’t like providing my personal info to somebody I don’t really know (who does!?).

Does anybody know any microstock site that

  • doesn’t require many samples
  • loose review
  • doesn’t require too much personal info…like a scan of your ID!

Am I in la-la land again!?

    All the microstock sites require a copy of your scanned ID or passport and its safe as you can see, hundreds of photographers and illustrators are joining them each day and there are thousands already.
