Something I am very passionate about, is Artists giving away their work for free! It is eroding our livelihood and profession. Artist that are just starting out fall into this "trap" and think that it will bring them exposure! It won't, you will just be without money to put food on the table! One artist that I truly admire, is preaching this now with posts and videos on his site and Youtube. He is really getting the message out there in the best way, by word of mouth. So watch these videos, and spread the word. The more WE as creative people respect and value our work, the more we will be able to make a living from it, and clients will respect us and our work in return! As it is now, their is a belief that we are a dime a dosen, and we can be replaced at anytime by someone just as good as us. This is a total misbelief! We and our work is unique! Company's who make money off our work, cannot do it unless WE create something for them! You have to start believing we are one of the most important pieces of the puzzle in this creative field.
