An anonymous Spanish ‘artist’ recently uploaded a conversation he apparently had with a fan who asked for a commission.

We all know that artists dedicate an awful lot of time and hard work to their craft, and very often don’t get the compensation they deserve.

That didn’t deter this plucky fan however, and what was to follow was a barely believable exchange that quickly descended into farce, with the fan using increasingly desperate tactics to try score himself some free art.
