I do professional illustration. I have a full line-up of regular work, but still occasionally do commissions on the side.
I was contacted by a friend of a friend I used to hang out with but haven’t heard from in over a year.
Client: Oh, mistress of pencils, would you draw something for me?
Me: Sure. Give me the details of what you want and I’ll give you an estimate.
Client: But we’re best friends! :O
Me: And friends appreciate the work of their friends.
Client: Well, I was just asking :)
Me: And I was just answering :)
