Artist Teaches A Lesson To People Who Kept Asking Him To Draw Them For Free

You do not walk into a pizza place demanding a free meal because you have heard good things about it. And you do not storm into a football stadium and demand a free ticket because you are a fan of the team. Then, why on Earth would you contact an artist for a free drawing just because you’ve checked out his Instagram account? Well, perhaps you wouldn’t, but plenty of people did. Jon Arton from Birmingham, England has received numerous free drawing requests; he started trolling the ones that dare to make them.


“I’ve always drawn since I was a kid,” Jon said. “I love art, and it’s all I’ve ever wanted to do.”


Jon has been getting requests for free drawings since he was a chid, too. “I’d spend my time in class doodling insulting images of the teachers. It got me in trouble a few times but was worth it for making people laugh”, he added.


Surprisingly, even though Jon’s art career has progressed way beyond these offensive drawings, several people still ask him for free illustrations every week. “It can be a bit irritating,” he continued. “I take it as a compliment, and most people are a bit unaware of how much time can go into a piece of art. I thought a silly doodle might get this point across and hopefully make people laugh.”


“Art isn’t really seen as a job/career but more of a hobby which you enjoy, so people assume you would be happy to do it for a little bit of ‘exposure.'”


“I wish I could do drawings for free,” Jon added. “It is something I have done for giveaways to my followers online or for charity. Sadly, I have to fund my expensive pencil habit.”
