There was a comic that was circulating a couple weeks back that wonderfully explained/shot down artists working ‘for exposure’.
One person approached the artist, giving a ‘I like your work, I can’t pay, let’s work together for exposure’ bit, and then the artist explained how they have never heard of the person, and exposure doesn’t work that way.
Now I can’t find it. Drat. Can anyone help?
EDIT: Thank you @blastermath!
