I’m a senior design student at university, and have had a few internships and some freelance work. My mom calls me to tell me about how she got an artist to do character paintings for her for the book she’s writing.
Client: Oh my god you should see these pictures he did, they’re so freaking beautiful!
Me: Send them to me, I’d love to see!
Client: He only let me preview them. I can’t have them until I’ve paid him $1200. It’s so damn expensive.
Me: Aw, well that’s usually how it works. You gotta pay the rest of the deposit.
Client: Hey, why don’t I give you the login information and you take a picture of the preview and redo it for me so I don’t have to pay!
