On behalf of all creative professionals out there—yes, even that ~*artist*~ friend you have—please stop asking them to do things FOR FREE. We know that everybody uses the friendship card once in a while, and if your friend genuinely wants to do it for you as a gift, then great! But most of the time, it’s just annoying (and somewhat offensive) especially if they don’t offer first. Knowing how much artists can struggle, shouldn’t you be the first one supporting your friend’s art by actually stepping up and paying for his or her service?
