I illustrated 60-page book for a client I had previous worked with satisfactorily for many years. The book is now in stores. The client and their publisher and they want to make a larger version of the same book.
Client: We want you to redeliver the illustrations for the new version. The proportions are different, so you probably have to change the composition of each page. And we need you to redo all the illustrations, because we actually didn’t like them at all in the first book. Make them more beautiful, with more details, like a real illustrator would.
Oh, and since we paid you too much on the first version, it seems fair that we don’t pay anything this time around for what are essentially fixes.
Me: Wait… the budget for the first book was proposed by you, and all illustrations were happily approved after some corrections. And now you want me to redo the whole book for free?
Client: Yes. The whole project depends on you!
