Recently this meme has been circulating around the internet:
It’s used in the context that good art costs money. While mostly true, the problem with the meme is that while the Mona Lisa is considered great art, it was never completed, or delivered to the client. Your art, is it complete and deliverable…if so you’re a step ahead of someone who has a better show than yours, but can’t present it.
Personally I’ll pay for something that gets done over something that while great, is never finished or delivered to me!
