If you worked at a fast food joint, and someone told you to flip some burgers for free. Would you? Hells NO! So why is it that people think it's ok to ask an artist to draw something for free?

This week the boys ponder this exact question.

Take it from Adam and Andrew, there's nothing more stressful for an artist than trying to maintain their identity and relevance working as a commerical arist.

Well it's been one of those weeks.

Andrew is busy with long hours and tight deadlines for work, while Adam is busy keeping his apartment warm and dry.

Now that they have been working for almost 2 years, new questions and concerns arise with the future and they realize that ambitions and dreams they once had have now changed.

This episode deals with how they have been adjusting but still trying to reach those long term goals.
