13 Jan Commission tips
I came across this video a couple of weeks ago and figured I’d share. It you plan to be a “working artist” it’s important to get you business together and learn how to deal with clients. One of the most important things I’ve learned in my short carrier is to ask for half up front. Anyway, watch the video by artist Cedar Lee.
” One more piece of advice that I didn’t mention but should have is to always under-promise and over-deliver. For example, if you think it’ll take you a week to make a piece, if you’re anything like me, it’ll actually take you 2 weeks. So tell the client it’ll take 3! Then when you produce the finished work in “only” 2 weeks they will be delighted.” – Cedar Lee
