People Kept Asking This Artist To Draw Them For Free, So He Decided To Teach Them A Lesson

You don’t walk into a pizza place and demand a free meal because you’ve heard good things about it. And you certainly don’t storm into a football stadium demanding a free ticket because you’re a fan of the team. Then why would you contact an artist for a free drawing only because you’ve checked out his Instagram account? Well, maybe you wouldn’t but there are plenty of people who do. In fact, Jon Arton from Birmingham, England has received so many free drawing requests, he started trolling the ones that have the audacity to make them.

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

The artist has been getting requests for free drawings since he was a kid, 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.”

Surprisingly, even though Jon’s art career has progressed way beyond those offensive drawings, at least a couple of people still ask him for free illustrations every week. “It can be a bit irritating,” he said. “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 may 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.”

This Guy Shared The Weirdest Thing He’s Seen At A Client’s House And It’s Hard Not To Laugh At It

Working in customer service, you never know who, or what you are gonna meet next. A good example of this is a recent reddit thread where someone asked, “People who enter homes for a living (Maintenance, cable contractors, etc), what’s the strangest thing you’ve encountered when entering someone’s home?” The topic has already received nearly 10,500 upvotes and while most of the responses are incredibly intriguing, one stands out from the rest.

It’s by a computer technician and involves a parrot, a toy train, and… You have to read it to believe it.

“Stories like the one I wrote were definitely highlights of my career as an on-call computer tech, but there are equally as many horror stories,” the guy who wanted to remain anonymous told Bored Panda. “Looking back, I’d say that it was a decent college gig, but ultimately not something I’d want to do as a career.”

His first impression of the client was a positive one. “He was a pretty good-natured guy, in his early 70s and in decent shape for his age. I only visited him twice – both times to remove viruses (back then, old people on the internet attracted viruses like bugs to lights). Both times I was there he was pretty cool to me, but we didn’t have all that much conversation outside of talking about his bird, and fixing his computer.”

“When you work in a job that has you going into random people’s homes, you’re bound to have interesting experiences, and you eventually learn to just roll with it,” the guy concluded.

Sometimes, life truly is stranger than fiction. (Facebook cover image: John)
