but for commissioners , like some of us have already said, we charge that 20% DA deducts from out earnings so that we get our moneys worth.. so in actuality... we should be upset with how DA has to take money away from artist..
most of us should be lucky that some commissioners even take POINT commissions at all , they could only decide to do money commissions.
Kawiko should take only money commissions since everyone is on her ass treating her really bad as if shes not another person like you or me. Her taking point commissions at all is being considerate that some people dont have money... but some people have points
I agree the point conversion is stupid It's double-dipping, really. We buy DA "currency" and yet, DA does not actually value it at the same rate. That's just so stupid. I am not sure why artists even bother with DA points anymore, it's a waste of our money Da isn't really doing us any favors that's for sure. I know people have them, but when it comes to converting them back, it's just not fair.
I know. I have never told an artist they were expensive! Who can put a price on someone's creativity? Really. It comes ONLY from them and no one else. I've often told people they were too cheap, though. lol. I think people who complain are a tad selfish and have no idea what being an artist really means or what work and heart goes into the craft.
