Superman and Batman interactions are not about who is better, it is not about who is stronger, it is not about who is more popular.
It is about team work and friendship.

Poor people stay poor because other artists have allowed the industry to degrade to a level that people drastically undervalue art. In graphic arts, an independent artist typically makes below minimum wage. So many people take advantage of starting out and struggling artists, that they offer “exposure” as compensation. Or a hideously low rate. I have had people offer to pay me just $5/page for color work. And they saw nothing wrong with this offer. This is for something that I typically spend 4-6 hours per page on. And there are artists out there so desperate for ANY money, they will accept those offers. And thus perpetuate the idea that this is okay.
No, poor people aren’t poor because they take art degrees. They’re poor because there are entitled assholes who take advantage of them so they can turn a bigger profit.
Art is everywhere. Try to imagine a world without it. Without graphics. Without font design. Without logos. Everything done in the same, bland typefaces, with no images and no sense of color. Artists are more than people who sit and make pretty pictures. They are what gives companies an image, an identity. So why are they treated like the lowest possible rank?
Thank you. I am so sick of people trying to take advantage of me as an artist and use manipulative bullshit to get rates they want. Two rules to live by, fellow artists: 1) Never accept a job that involves the client getting your hard work and you getting only ‘exposure’. (I learned this the hard way. Seems to be a rite of passage for many, if not all artists.) Accept only cash as payment, according to your rates. Which leads to… 2) Never accept a job in which the client doesn’t bother to ask you for your rates and pushes their own amount of payment onto you. When they do this, they don’t respect you, and they sure as hell won’t think twice about milking you for everything you’ve got should you accept such a deal.
