Exposure Doesn't Pay the Bills Fairy art print - a muse for creatives #titsoutcollective


This totally badass fairy was inspired by the incredible Countess Ablaze, and is part of my contribution to the #titsoutcollective, a charity fundraising collaboration with an army of creatives. You can find out all about it here: https://www.countessablaze.com/

As a creative person trying to make a living from my work, I really need a friendly reminder every now and again that it's OK to charge people, that this is a real job, and although I do things for cheap or free sometimes, I do also need to make money. And it really is OK to ask.

This fairy is ideal to stick on the wall of your studio or above your desk to remind you that exposure doesn't pay the bills. She'll watch over you and wag her figure disapprovingly when you don't ask for what you're worth. She reminds you that you ARE valuable, that your time, energy and skill are precious resources.

Sales of this print are helping me to fundraise for Together Rising, a really inspiring charity that responds instantly to humanitarian crises around the world, including the recent issue of families separated at the Mexican/American border. 20% of the sale price of each print will be donated to them at the end of July. You can read all about their wonderful work here: https://togetherrising.org/

I print these to order, so you can customise the text on the piece of paper that the fairy is holding up - you could go add the rallying cry of the #titsoutcollective, have the iconic logo on there, or whatever you want! I've mocked up some of the options in the pictures (and censored them here for sensitive eyes). Just let me know your preference when you place your order.

The original fairy illustration was hand-drawn and the background created in vibrant inks, then I have combined it all digitally and added more colour.

This listing is for an A5 giclee print on lovely archival paper. The paper is slightly off-white and has a rich texture. It is unmounted, and comes safely wrapped in biodegradable cellophane ready to be mounted and framed, or simply pinned to a wall.
