I know this is making the rounds, but I wanted to make sure my artists peers out there see this. Most every creative professional has been or will be approached to do “spec” (on speculation, or speculative) work in their lives, and when you do, you know all these feels.

Alternatively, those that offer you “great exposure” but no pay; same sort of thing. I’ve fallen for this in the past. Please don’t let it happen to you.

It’s one thing to give your time and work to a cause you believe in and support if you have the means. It’s quite another to be asked for free work in this way.

Guys, we artists gotta stick together.  Value your art, and others will too.
