Freelancer Feedback Comments for Client:
“Extremely high maintenance client who insisted on micromanaging every single aspect of art creation and loved to indulge in long-winded egocentric communications which in time became unprofessional, familiar, and left the artist with contradictory directives.
Though project scope called for a maximum billing of 25 hours per week, client''s email digressions and delays caused me to spend several more hours than I actually billed on the timesheet. Though pleased with the artwork, client''s excessive control on details changed project scope several times, caused me to create multiple drawings for a single image; client even interrupted workflow to commission a Art Deco poster to hang in his office.
Still, I delivered artwork that surpassed client''s requirements; client was happy to receive and commented positively on the art. I quote:
"Pretty darned nice drawing of the action..." "Really terrific art here." "Brilliant!"
"You got it. You really got it. Superb and don''t let this one request detract from knowing how pleased I am." "They''re a buy. Both are just great. Why do we ever bother with video and cinema?" "Better than the movie!... Until today, I hadn''t thought about a grander mission for the poster..." "Robert: I apologize. I have not provided you with the right images for the visual hozanna..." "Style look absolutely wonderful." "Let none of the foregoing about content impugn the quality of your drawings. Your style, color, composition, foreground action are engaging and full of life. It''s the writing I have the problem with."
As I was about to upload the latest version, client decided to cancel the poster, then, claiming I was ignoring his email(s)* he abruptly terminated the project. *I was in fact working hard without interruption to deliver the latest batch. However, this client is more interested in carrying on endless egocentric email discussions then getting the work done.”
