This will not apply to all art professionals (and certainly should not be taken as good advice by some) but it won’t hurt them either. All this message has to do is help decrease the number of “I’ll pay you in publicity” offers from people who are trying to sell ice to [Inuit], so to speak. Maybe it might even result in a few more artists getting paid for their work?
"You don’t pay IN publicity, you pay FOR publicity."
Reblogging this for all my fellow freelancers! (Unfortunately, we are unable to feed our cats in publicity.)

I’ve been going to anime/comic conventions for eight years, yet I still can’t explain what the significance of conventions are to people without having to go through a 20 minute explanation. It’s truly a life changing experience, I can tell you that for sure!! Here’s just a small example, but when I was younger I thought I was the only person on this planet that used Deviantart, until I attended Sakura Con. I ended up collecting over 50 business cards that had their DA links that year, and I thought that was the just coolest thing to know that I was not alone. Countless other moments had occurred that year where I met more and more people who knew of and appreciated the same things that I did. So I hope most of you can relate to that feeling of absolute bliss and joy of attending a con. uvu Why do you like conventions? I’d love to hear your stories!!
