QUESTION ABOUT DONATIONS + COMMISSIONS FOR GOOD CAUSES
I wanted to know what people's opinions (artists' and commissioners' alike) were when it comes to artists asking for small donations...(Not in exchange for or in exchange for art)? Or even for commissions for either desperate or charitable causes?
Although I'm an artist myself, I've also donated and commissioned some artists for those reasons, but I honestly don't know what other people's viewpoints are on these issues.
And um, if my fellow artists can give me a little of their experiences on how to avoid and repel bad commissioners, please share. (Especially when there are commissioners out there who like taking advantage of artists...)
As always, I look forward to improving my skills and services as an artist and would welcome any advice and opinions on these matters. Thank you.
