I'm looking for someone to draw some cartoon-like images to go along with the website I'm working on for a school project. I can't afford to pay for the work in money unfortunately, but if you want we can discuss a form of compensation. Of course, you will receive full credit for your work.

Here's my website: www.anxiety-resource.com

Please contact me via PM if you are interested.

Do you barter with your Doctor for medical procedures? Do you beg for food?

Graphic Designers are paid for their work!

No need to be rude. I understand what you're trying to say, but I just wanted to see if anyone would help me out. It's not a huge deal, but I was hoping maybe somebody who does that kind of stuff in their spare time.

I should also state that I will not be making any money from this website, so it's not as if I'm trying to stand anybody up here. I'm just calling for people who would be willing to help, if you don't want to or can't, then don't help.

I wouldn't get too upset about the guy above. He's right that designers like to get paid, but there are plenty of students or people looking to build up their portfolio that would probably jump at the chance to help you. I would try asking around the art department of your school.

I am not trying to be rude, just realistic. Too may people come to this forum asking for free graphics and I find that insulting. I earn a living as a Graphic Designer after spending years in school to learn the trade. There is no easy way out and you have to learn to pay your dues.

If you were asking for help about how to create the graphics you need, that would be different. If it truly is a school project, you should learn how to create your own graphics or purchase them from a stock agency.

Ghall,

I would probably invest in some clip art books or CDs. Maybe search for some free clip art. If this is a project for school that's the route I'd go. I have a few clip art books where I could scan the images in and email them, but you'd have to photoshop the background and such out or fix them the way you want.

PM me if interested and I'll go through some.

Thank you, that would be really helpful. I'm just about to send you a PM.

Lawyers do pro bono work sometimes for people who really need it, why can't Graphic Designers? I do little things for people for free every once in a while. It keeps me humble.

Ghall, the site looks good. Just make sure you check your spelling. Here's one thing I noticed on the home page:
...searching in vane for the cure to his anxiety.
Should be '...searching in vain for the cure to his anxiety.'

Great, you volunteered to do the cartoon figures for ghall's website for free. What a humanitarian!
