However, I had another question. I was recently browsing around the profiles of some highly popular artists who frequently take commissions, and noticed a few had very personal profiles... By this, I mean, swearing openly on their profile, slogans that could be taken as rude, and some that mentioned taking drugs/alcohol.
It got me thinking, what is the general opinion of these sorts of attitudes on a "professional" account? Is it unprofessional to feature swearing, alcohol/drug use or offhand attitudes on the same account you take commissions on? What do you feel when you see this sort of behaviour in a popular artist's profile, and does it turn you away from possibly commissioning them?
I imagined it being likened to a person swearing on shift in a job, however, online is very different, so I just wanted to know out of curiosity if that sort of behaviour effects your opinion of an artist's professionalism.
Thank you in advance for any feedback!
