Client: Hello, I have written a children’s book with an ecological foucs and would love for you to illustrate it.
Me: Neat, what is your schedule and how much have you budgeted for the illustrations?
Client: Well I’d like to have it printed in two months, but I can’t pay you unless the book sells. The grant I applied for the book only covered the writing. But the subject matter is important to you, isn’t it? Think of it as activism!
