I was one of six artists asked to take part in a local Christmas exhibition. Each of us were to make 4 original illustrations, for a total of 24 between us.

On November 6:

Client: Can you provide your illustrations by December 1?

Me: Absolutely! I just need to know what theme I’m working with and what size you’re looking for.

Client: Great! I’ll call you tomorrow with the details! 

I didn’t hear back for a month. On December 6:

Client: Can you bring those illustrations tomorrow? Also, they need to be framed.

Me: I can’t draw four illustrations in one day. I needed that information, and followed up on it a few times. It would have been cool to be part of this show, but I have other clients who need work from me, so sorry, I can’t participate.. 

No response. I got another email a day later that totally ignored what I’d said.

Client: Hey, can you actually bring 24 illustrations tomorrow?  

Me: ….

I guess none of the other illustrators wanted to produce new work in a day – though I’m not sure why they thought I’d be willing to produce all 24 in a night.
