I’m working on some album art for a client. He seemed like a nice guy and he made a 50% deposit.
I did a round of sketches. He wasn’t sold. No problem. I do another round and he’s still not feeling it. I ask him to give me a more detailed description of exactly what he wants and he does.
What he described wasn’t my typical style, so I sketched up a quick draft of the image as he described to see if it would work for him. He loved it! At this point I was actually pretty excited about the project, so I get to work right away. Just as I was finishing up I got this message:
Client: Hey man! I actually just got back from France and I found
this amazing painting in the Public Domain that I want you to use
It was a Picasso I was replaced by a f**king Picasso.
