Work on spec?

leave a comment »

Web Designer Chris Williams writes for about the perils of working on spec. The crossover between commercial design and comics becomes particularly well defined when put in these terms;

Speculative work means you create something for your client, if they like it, you get paid. If they don’t like it, you don’t get paid. There is no assurance that you’ll be compensated for your efforts. By the way, “building your portfolio” or “getting a link” is NOT compensation.
