I have to reinforce this. To myself and others. I have a special talent and skill and it needs to be compensated for. A lot of non profit organizations try to get me to volunteer my services. When they ask me to create a flyer for them they don’t realize the work that is involved. Actually, I never realized how much work I have been doing for free thinking it’s not a big deal. Well recently I did a lot of free creative work for my congregation. I was never thanked for the service I did. Nor was the congregation aware of my creative contributions. A member finally monetized my work. I have given my time away for free. I made my talent and skill not important. So I have given into the belief that art is not that important. I spent almost 4 plus hours creating and designing advertising that will bring in business. I give a professional product that will attract attention.
And I have not been given credit or appreciation from these organizations. So I am posting the flyers that I gave away for free. And from now on I will be paid either with money or a service or membership payment.
Here are some of my promotional projects.
