there a lotsa thing that you shouldn't say to artist that makes you lost respect from them
I see some of the meme's and words about it flowing on facebook, tumblr, etc.
some of them are true, some of them are just silly.
I realize that many people and promising client dont understand about Artist life and our work Value
but here are the things that make me feel awkward, lose my respect, or simply want to slap a person in the face..
here its is :
1. if you are a stranger, please don't come to me and demand me to do art for you for free.
making art to me are a special thing, and I never done anything for free, if its not trade with money, its trade with trust, love, respect and friendship.
its take times and effort to do so.
suddenly come to me, demanding artwork while I dunno nothing about you at all are not polite, and make me feel awkward and feel bad.
2. do not ever belittle the effort I put on my artwork.. I could go berserk on this.
if you like to criticize my work, I'm okay and truly appreciated it, but not a comment who ASSUME that I dont work hard enough, that I do the art halfhearted.
that its just an easy for me and I just do it with out put to much effort in it.
probably its understandable if the art are just doodle. but not if the comment are for finished work.
even if you tease me, I will believe you trying to hurt my pride.
3. to me Private commission Price and Commercial Commission price are different. and to me it's a normal thing that Commercial commission price are more expensive.
its not the matter how much effort I've done to the works, but what the works going to be USED. that's why its called Commercial use
, and not Private use
please be considered.
Negotiation about the price are understandable, but insist a cheaper price when I already reject politely and keep question about my decision are very rude thing to do.
there are many artist out there, if we both dont meet any agreement, please let it go.
thing's above are the things that make me loose respect to people who treat me or other artist like that.
thankfully, mostly I surrounded by lovely and nice people who treat me with so much love.
people who are rude and disrespectful are just few and very rare.
I appreciate if people come to me to criticize my work and tell me what I do wrong
I believe I'm a tolerant person, and open to friendship and critique
so if you treat me nice, I will be sweet and nice to you to.
