Man Asks Artist For A Free Portrait Because His Son ‘Has Cancer’, Gets The Answer He Deserves

Published 6 years ago

Every struggling artist who has been asked to work for ‘exposure’ will tell you how annoying that is. However, one anonymous Spanish artist has recently encountered a fan, who decided to push things even further.

It all started pretty tamely but quickly went downhill after the fan started guilt-tripping the artist to create a painting for his dying son. Luckily, the artist did not give in to the pressure and handled the situation perfectly.

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
