Good Art Ain't Cheap, Mr. President

Those who can draw and paint, draw and paint. Those who can't, hire those who can, but preferably at market rates, please:

"The Obama campaign’s request for submissions says that it “is seeking poster submissions from artists across the country illustrating why we support President Obama’s plan to create jobs now, and why we’ll re-elect him to continue fighting for jobs for the next four years.”

According to the [Graphic Artists Guild,] the award for the selected artists has no actual value, unless the recipient sells it. The campaign estimates the signed artwork’s value would be approximately $195. The guild’s pricing guidelines suggest that the proper compensation for such artwork is approximately $4,000."

But I fully expect that some true believer will still unicorn his way into top consideration for no pay at all.
