26 Times ‘Choosing Beggars’ Treat Artists Like Exposure Bucks Will Feed Them

Why would you even ask ANYTHING for free?

Artists need to get by with cold, hard cash. They cannot pay the bills and feed themselves by drawing for free or getting exposure. No number of followers will get you money – paying for an actual service does. Yet, there are people out there thinking they can treat artists like trash as if their exposure is great or that art is a cheap thing.

Yes, art is subjective, people have preferences, but resources and materials have to be paid for. The amount of time it took for an artist to finish something is what you are paying for, just like how you pay for the massage, for education, etc. You pay for services, it’s simple as that.

You see the word ‘free’, you run.
