Alright, friends and family, it's time I put something into perspective. My artwork and how much it costs. I have been asked again by somebody how much it would cost for me to do something for them in X style and X set-up. I told them it would probably run them close to $200. They said "nevermind" and went on their merry way.
They were expecting me to do a piece that would take me 20+ hours for $50. My work comes out to about $10 - $12 per hour. If you want me to work for 20 hours and only pay me $50, that means you think my time is only worth $2.5 an hour. Do you honestly think that is fair? Think about your job and how much you are paid, per hour. Would you like it if somebody decided that your work was only worth less than half of minimum wage?
No, I do not give discounts either for friends and family either. So please don't even joke about it.
So please, consider this the next time you go to ask me for artwork.
