Yo you! 

I found out that old  freelance thing I did  one year ago I think . Brought back some bad memories, but a really good lesson I thought I could share with you people of the earth.

This producer from IDW publication  contacted me, one day, to see if I could  make a cover for the new Mr.Peabody& Sherman comic book series. It looked like a dope freelance contract to me so I said yes without hesitation.  But the thing is, I had to do an unpaid drawing test before doing the actual cover. I did the test the day after, sent the drawings to the producer, receive an email from her telling me that everything’s great and never heard back from her again…

THE LESSON HERE KIDS IS  NEVER DRAW A SINGLE LINE ON ANYTHING FOR FREE!! 

I was so pissed off when this happened!! But at least I learned something really really important from this shitty experience. I hope I’ll have a REAL opportunity to do some cover art one day.  

The movie is crazy awesome though!

See ya!

Not my art, and it’s sad that the industry is in such a state that we have to share things like this, but it’s also important. One of the professors at my school passed on the same advice to the class once, exact same thing—be wary of “art tests” that don’t have any pay behind them. Your work is worth money, no matter what. uxu
