A few years ago, an artist friend and I were chatting, and he mentioned that exposure alone isn't all that valuable to artists, especially ones who have honed their craft to a point where their work is considered desirable. The reason he cited was the fact that there is a veritable legion of people out there who want to avail themselves of the artist's services but who either cannot or do not wish to pay for them. People who would be offended if someone suggested they should go and flip burgers for hours for no pay are all too happy to assume that someone who has spent years getting good at something has nothing better to do than draw for them for nothing.
I like to think that no one (at least no one who knows me) would take me for one of those people. That being said, there is still room in the world for charity. Another friend of mine has started a dog rescue organisation down in the Atlanta, Georgia area. They endeavour to get homeless dogs from "kill shelters" and re-locate them to loving homes and foster homes while they await permanent homes. They have recently secured their business licence and finally had their facility inspected as being safe for the housing of animals. While their appeal for funds to help run the project is ongoing, they currently have a need for a website designer willing to donate their time to putting together the internet "face" of their non-profit enterprise.
I'm hoping that someone reading this either has some skills in the area of webpage design or knows someone who does and who would be willing to help these folks out. If this could be you, please drop me a line and I'll put you in contact with Jessica and Scott, the folks running the new dog shelter. Thank you in advance to anyone who can help, or who is willing to help spread the word in hopes of finding someone who can.
