Let’s get something straight. 1. I DO NOT do commission work for exposure 2. I DO NOT do commission work for people for followers as payment, my work should always speak for itself and people can CHOOSE to follow me if they enjoy it. 3. If I make free work, it’s my personal work or presents I decide to make for friends or people I’m a fan of because I WANT TO AND THAT’S IT.
If you aren’t willing to pay for work people are doing for YOU, I don’t want your business. It says a lot about you as a person. I understand wanting a “deal” but there’s a difference between fair prices and outright cheating someone out of their LIVING.
Sorry I’m so mad everyone. :( I didn’t think I was being THAT rude in my message.
EDIT: kinomatika brought up a good point. Minimum wage in most states averages between 7-8 dollars for ONE HOUR of work (most of the time before tax) and this project he was describing in his original message (not pictured) was at least 12+ hours for me. Assuming it took me exactly 12 hours, I would be working for EIGHTY THREE CENTS. ($0.83) PER HOUR. JFC
EDIT: starexorcist also made a good point “Would you tell a chef to cook for you for free because oh they do it outside of work?”
American artists couple Paul DeSomma and Marsha Blaker express their oceanic inspirations through amazing glass sculptures showing troubled waves and their foam, in suspension. To design the vases and the vessels, they had to use a glass molding technique.
