I had done an illustration of a walled Arabian city for a regular client. The client sent it back the same day because he wanted the outer wall to be in a deeper shadow. I wasn’t happy about the change and I had other work due, so I waited to do it in the morning before my agent was to deliver it.
The next morning, my agent arrived early, and he delivered the painting to the client before I even got in to work. I was surprised to find it was already gone when I arrived. The agent spoke with the client when he delivered the illustration:
Client: See, it’s perfect now! He should have done it this way the first time!
