Artists Are Sick Of Being Asked To Work For Free, AndThis Artist Decided To Draw The Ridiculous Requests They Get
The Twitter Account Forexposure_txt was created solely to expose assholes on the internet who think artists should essentially work for free. The account posts screenshots of conversations between artists and people asking for comissions, and the shock that people express when they find out that art is a real job that requires real money.
Emmie Tsumura, an illustrator and graphic designer from Toronto, decided to paint a few of the submissions, wonderfully depicting the people she imagines are behind the keyboard. The drawings were created for Format Magazine, for a series aptly called "For Exposure." We decided to take after our pals at Bored Panda and post a few of our favorites.
