    Ask a Freelancer is a new Cushion podcast where experienced freelancers answer questions about freelancing.

    This episode's questions include:
    - Do art directors still expect illustrators to snail mail them postcards or do they prefer to see digital work now?
    - I was approached by an agency to do some illustration work for a 2-month project on-site and they asked me for my day-rate. I think they want a work-for-hire situation, which seems a bit odd for me. Aren’t there rights, usage, etc., which need to be factored into the cost even if I work on-site?
    - How do you build up enough client work to freelance full-time while working a full-time job?

    - How do you strike the balance between too little work and too much work?
    - How do you balance doing work that you’re passionate about versus work that pays the bills?
    - As an extrovert, the hardest part of freelancing for me is the lack of human contact. In particular, I miss those consistent relationships you build over time with people on your team or in the office. What are your strategies for maintaining your social health?
