There is nothing more annoying than people who constantly hit you up for free stuff.

No one likes a freeloader and we all have someone in our life that does it and usually, doesn’t know it.

So when Jon Arton – a fantastically amazing artist who lives in Birmingham, England – recieved messages from patrons who don’t want to pay up for his work that supports his lifestyle….he gets creative.

Let’s back up.

Jon has a super popular Instagram filled with amazing work.

It’s spooky how good it is.

And more often than not, people reach out and request drawings….for free.

He told Buzzfeed that he gets quite a few requests and it wasn’t until recently he decided to give these folks exactly what they asked for.

The results are both hilarious and the responses are too.

Jon shared with Buzzfeed:

“I got a little irritated by them and sending a silly picture seemed like a funny idea. It was a bit therapeutic.”

Yes another “free” art post, only it’s not free anymore! You people love my hyper realistic style so much you’re willing to pay your hard earned cash for it! I was happy to keep doing it for free, but as you were so insistent I thought I’d let you pay. Now if there’s one thing I love more than money, it’s praise and adoration from strangers on the internet, so I thought why not give all that hard earned cash away to a children’s charity! Don’t worry about me guys, I don’t need the money not with all this free “exposure”! All I ask from you is a small donation and maybe some nice comments below like “what a hero!” and “I lolled” I also want to say a massive thank you to everyone who has donated so far. I’ve never done anything like this before and I’m blown away by the support. If you’d like to be tagged on your photos that I post please let me know. If you’ve donated and I haven’t got to you yet please send me a message or comment below! If you’d like to donate then click the link on my profile! 👍

Another day, another free art post. It’s that time again! The time where I utilise the years of experience I have built up mastering my craft, years and years of painstaking hard work, stress and struggle. All for this moment. Creating hyper realistic, renaissance level master pieces of your faces FOR FREE! It’s not an easy task creating fine art from poorly taken, out of focus selfies with snapchat filters but I’m no average artist. I have become a master at enhancing your plain, mediocre faces. Like a fashion model photographer in post production I enhance eyes, whiten teeth and remove the dry skin from the end of your nose….I think it’s dry skin, might be a bogey. I present you in your best possible light! Enjoy! 😉

The cheeky artist announced in the post that all of his donations would go towards Birmingham Children’s Hospital.

The artist is a good sport about it all, to say the least. Under another post, he quips:

“As I’m now over 45k followers I thought it would only be right in giving you, the little people something back. My DMs are full of free drawing requests so I thought, why not do a few more!
Nothing gives me more pleasure than offering a few down and out people who can’t afford a piece of art the opportunity to own something priceless. I imagine these stunning pieces will be passed down from generation to generation as one man’s (me) example of selfless generosity. I don’t expect adoration or applause all I ask from you is a handful of likes, a few follows and maybe some comments such as “lol” and “this Jonarton guys real swell!” Thank you all!”

Show Jon some love and support buy checking out his Instagram and Etsy pages.

And don’t ask him to do something for free unless you really want to be shamed by the masses- you have been warned and the sass is real.
