Jessica Hische. Asks the eternal question all us illustrators and graphic designers ask ourselves; Should I work for free?
(The answer is generally a resounding No. Something I suspected all along...)
My favourite part? "Did they promise you 'exposure' or a 'good portfolio piece'? Yes? This is the most toxic line of bullshit anyone will ever feed you."
I perhaps wouldn't have put it so strongly, but essentially, it's true. Will it stop me working for free? Probably not. It's the old 'If I don't do it, someone else will...'
(The whole 'we are killing our own industry' discussion could be left for another day...)
