I'm new

hi I was thinking of doing freelance art commissions via Instagram as a side hustle.  I don't expect a lot of money but I'm having trouble for applying an abn. I don't know what select for the " business category " if I just want to do cheap digital art commissions and maybe in the future use a drop shipping thing such as printful or red bubble. I know to apply as a sole trader if I'm doing freelancing stuff.
