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. @DapsDraws Dapo Adeola Videos and pictures

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. @DapsDraws Dapo Adeola Videos and pictures

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. @DapsDraws Dapo Adeola Videos and pictures

This is literally the FUCKING WORST advice I’ve ever seen on how to pay an illustrator for their work 🥴🥴🥴

There is nothing “fair” about this at all. @DapsDraws Dapo Adeola Videos and pictures

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? @DapsDraws Dapo Adeola Videos and pictures
