Free not Cheap?


An Interesting Thought from Paul Scriven on freelance pricing.

I'm happy to do free work for projects I'm interested in or people I like a lot, but over the years, I've settled on a single hard-and-fast rule for doing free work: No revisions whatsoever. I'll do my best, and there's no hard feelings if it's not what you're looking for, but that's it.

This is especially important to make clear when working with friends. Seriously.

Feeling Ambitious?

L├╝rzer's Archive is accepting submissions to their annual 200 Best Illustrators Worldwide 2011/12.

Selections are made by an international jury, although they also give prices for pages. I'm not sure what that's about. Do you think they make you pay for the privilege of being selected? I dunno. But I thought I'd bring it to your attention.

SUBMISSION DEADLINE is JULY 21, 2010.
