So I have a degree in art. I paid an AWFUL lot of money to get said degree. And then I'm requested to do free art for people... I mean. I don't mind a favor for a favor. Example: I have a friend who's amazing at English. I asked him to read over an essay for me. Great! He asked me to do a banner for him for his blog, so I'm going to! See? it's like trading goods. He's good at one thing, I'm good at another, and we trade.
Here is an example of my coworker's dog I drew for her. It's actually the cutest dog I've ever seen. (Yes, that includes my own dogs, and your dog too, if I've seen it.) I've decided it's the last "freebie" I'm giving out, because I like my co-worker and she's helped me out a lot at the job! BUT NO MORE!
This concludes the free art spree. Now my prices are HIGH!!!!
Opinions on this train of thought??
