  1. This kind of thing is unbelievable! I wish illustrators wouldn't do this kind of work so it will just finally stop.

  2. Unreal! That's great. You should send him 90 1$ illustrations so he can see what that buys.

  3. ack…that sounds like something that should go on

  4. I especially love that he sites: the illustrations should be cheerful… because he can afford to give art direction.

  5. Me too I saw this post on Guru:)It's strange but there are illustrators that accept thee kind of jobs:(Unbelieveble!
