    Seriously? Work for free? I'll have to go find that TED talk. Are they willing to work for free, including return any past pay they received?

    It's been years since I've done any spec work. I refuse. I've been painting since 1975 and in the graphic design field since 1980, so both have been life-long pursuits for me. And it's been a HUGE struggle in the past ten years, but I've been lucky enough, with the few clients I have, to have good relationships with them, as mentioned in that brilliant little video.
