My uncle contacted me about doing three or four illustrations for his organization’s website. He said the work would be paid and we agreed on my price, adjusted for family. We corresponded and discussed what he wanted and what I was doing, with copies of my progress sent every now and then to keep his mind at ease.
I sent over some work when we were about 75% complete so he could see how it was coming along.
Client: What are these?
Me: Illustrations, like you asked me to do.
Client: Actually, we were hoping for you to redesign the website. These are nice though.
Me: Well, I can redesign the website too, but I’ll have to charge a separate fee for that.
Client: I spoke to some of the other guys in the company. We were hoping that you’d do it for free, because you like the company.
Me: But you said this was paid work.
Client: Only to get you interested.
