If you're a freelance designer or artist, you've probably at one point come across a client that was unwilling to pay for your services, accompanied by a horrible excuse that goes something like, "It will be great material for your portfolio!" or "We thought you'd be willing to do it for free because you're passionate about design."

To take it a notch further, Toronto-based artist Emmie Tsumura decided to take some of the quotes and used them to create imagined portraits of the clients who might have said them.
