97 People Who Think They Can Pay Artists In “Exposure”
Artists don't need money, right? Their work of line fills their souls, and that's enough for any human being, right? And after all, drawing or having a photography career is more like a hobby and nobody gets paid for their hobbies...right?
Well, no, obviously. It's not right. But that still seems to be the attitude of a lot of people who expect unpaid work form artists, unfortunately. A Twitter account called For Exposure is bringing this to the world's attention by tweeting the most ridiculous responses that young artists have received when they've had the downright nerve to ask for money for doing a job for somebody! From being offered to be paid in exposure, of course, to be asked to do their absolute best working for free just because; the attitude of the commissioners is just appalling at best.
Now, if you are an artist who often hears the phrase 'free work,' these tweets will be painfully relatable. If you sympathize with those with unpaid internship careers lasting their whole lives, these stories are a great example of the cause. So scroll down below to check the unpaid laborers' struggles for yourself.
