Client: I saw your work and liked it, I’d like to discuss an opportunity with you.
Me: I’m intrigued, what’ve you got?
Client: I’m writing a comic strip, and I’d want you to illustrate a weekly 3-panel strip for a commitment of 42 weeks.
Me: Cool! Is this black-and-white, color…?
Client: It’s actually VERY cool, if you’re looking at benefit long term.
Me: That sounds very much like a setup for this not being a paying job, haha… hit me with the details!
Client: I’m sure I don’t know what you mean. I appreciate you sharing your interest. Enjoy your day. All the best.
He then blocked me.
