@forexposure_txt is a Twitter account dedicated to compiling quotes from artists who were expected to work for free. It was created by artist and writer Ryan Estrada, and we previously wrote about it here.

Well now an artist has decided to take some of those quotes and use them to inspire various portraits of what she imagines those people look like. They're part of a series titled "For Exposure," and they were created for Format Magazine by Emmie Tsumura, a Toronto-based illustrator and graphic designer. Check out some of our favorites below. If you're an artist then chances are that more than a few of them will resonate with you!

A professional business? This is almost as good as a layman amateur!

People who say this always think that artists live from stuff like hopes, dreams and unicorn magic. They don't realize that the artist is actually a human being who needs to buy food in order to live.
