So about a year ago, I told a friend 'oh no! your cat's sick! I'll throw money at making sure she gets better, because I like you and I can afford to cover her vet bills!'
Shortly after, he said 'right, I need money, so tell me what you'd like in an original artwork!' And I said 'I got canned from my job, but how about this- and the money I spent to make sure your beloved cat was OK? Call that the commission fee.'
His response was this
He was also kind enough to mail it to me on his own dime, since I'm going 'AAAAH WHERE IS MY INCOME AAAAAH'. I got it earlier today.
So he's djinni
. Why haven't you asked him for a commission? Me, I'm stunningly happy with the commission I threw him.
