This no-nonsense graphic shows why artists deserve to get paid.
We've all heard excuses like "it'll be great exposure," or, "it'll look great in your design portfolio," when clients explain why they don't want to cough up the cash. But it's simple: don't work for free. Whether you're working from home or busy sending out letterpress business cards to get yourself noticed, as an artist you should only work for clients who are willing to pay for your work.
To make it easy enough to understand for even the most short-sighted of clients, this bright and brutal flow chart spells out in simple steps why artists deserve to get paid every single time.

Much like many things in life, your business is a reflection your life's passion. Each life is unique in its own way and you want people to know that about your business is one of a kind as well. So why would you want a "microwaved" graphic design that was done at a very short time using pre-existing templates that 324,785 people used before you?!
As a unique Graphic Artist, I provide you the canvas to which your ideas will be presented visually. Carefully studying your business and the industry it falls under, I create original content based on the passion of YOUR business while choosing the most efficient way to convey your message.
In my October Newsletter, I've posted the "Moss Graffiti" DIY Project. The description wasn't copied correctly so I wanted to clarify it here. I've learned something VERY important about drafting up my newsletters: Never do it until after I've had my second cup of coffee.
"This time around, I chose this for the purpose of outdoor home decor. It wasn't necessarily for nefarious reasons (or it was it?). Use it to beautify a wall adjacent to your garden. I've seen some ad agencies use this specific media to get their messages across and sell their products."
Most people who know me on an intimate level know that being a fan of Nacho Libre (starring Jack Black), is an attribute I use to gauge whether I would befriend a person or not. Not too long ago today, I was in a deep thought about having my workplace decorated with a Nacho Libre movie poster. I started searching for the images on Google and alas! I ran into some movie posters that didn't look like the original renditions. However, "they look dope!" I thought to myself. I started tracking the artist and it led me to Melissa Cassara. A graphic designer who happens to be just as huge of a Nacho Libre fan as I am (or so it seems). I saw the series and the packages she's done for the movie and I automatically fell in love with them. I realized how her take on the project would make for a great collector's edition. It's evident through the references she's used as part of the design element. This definitely displays a quality necessary in making a great graphic artist - the well-knowledge of the product, which in this case the content of the movie. Kudos to Melissa Cassara. I shall have a can of Tecate along with my corn on a stick with mayo, chili powder, sprinkled with Cotija cheese in honor of your work!
