It now ten month and counting since I did an illustration for the New York Press. An Illustration I sent an invoice for and signed a contract.
I have yet to be paid.
Apparently, I am not alone. The NYP has been giving it’s illustrators a long, slow screw over for years now. The staff is dropping like fleeing rats and the payment department no longer takes phone calls from the hordes of angry, un-paid contributors. Do the world a favor and boycott any publication that weasels out of payment. A couple of angry emails on my behalf would not be unwelcome.
