You should help. Not because the Obama administration isn’t paying, but because you want to help those around you. The country as run by President Barack Obama is not a corporation seeking to profit personally/financially from your efforts (something tells me your brilliant design won’t sell enough to recover the deficit). But socially as we come together helping those without work to find it. I am against the disdain spreading around the internet that this man would call on the artists of the country he leads to help its citizens. If you don’t want to make a poster fine, but who paid you to complain and spread the no-spec links? No one. I leave you with a couple questions: Why take the time to complain and hate? Would it not be for the greater good (or at least your own moral fiber) to spread a positive message of support for those unable to find work?
Personally, if you ask me, the opportunity to win an Obama signed print of your artwork is a nice motivator, but if you don’t want to make a poster don’t. I won’t be. it;s that simple.
