It’s my goddaughters’ birthday today 🥳🥳🥳 This little madam is 3 going on 30 😭 and obsessed with Unicorns 🦄 It was a likkle bit of beef in the beginning (see pics), but once we squashed that it’s been all love ever since 😅 couldn’t imagine this world without her in it. 💚💚
2/3 Because YOU suffered to get a start doesn’t mean others should. In fact, you should be trying to make sure the opposite happens for newcomers. This idea that you must “earn” your stripes before getting decent money is BS! if your work is good then you deserve the fair pay.
1/3 BEWARE of any author/publisher/person that tries to claim responsibility for your success as an artist. YOUR ARTWORK DID THAT WORK…PERIOD! This is a job, you WORKED, so only you deserve the flowers for your contribution to the success of a project.
It’s a masterclass in exploitation and the biggest kicker is that it’s written by a member of the SCWBI 🙃🙃🙃 which is a society where a lot of budding artists turn to for info on how to navigate the world of children’s book illustration. This tells me this person knows better.
This is literally the FUCKING WORST advice I’ve ever seen on how to pay an illustrator for their work 🥴🥴🥴 $500???? For a whole ass picture book??? The cover design and formatting as well??? 😵😵😵 There is nothing “fair” about this at all.
I’m looking for a 3D artist to help me sculpt these girls, this is a paid gig. I wanna make some collectible figures for merch so the artist has to be someone who can capture my style in 3D based on their current style. Any recommendations?
