We all work for food… however NYC-based artist Lauren Hom cuts out the unnecessary steps of getting handed a check, standing in line at the bank, and then exchanging money for goods.
Hom, creator of Will Letter For Lunch, offers her service as a graphic artist in exchange for meals. The concept is simple… Hom creates handwritten menus for restaurants in New York City, and her payment is whatever she writes on the board.
“Grilled Whole Fish” on the menu? Then you can expect Hom to be dining on said fish shortly. Considering how much a beautifully-lettered menu classes up a joint, this bartering system seems more than fair. Especially if Hom designs a few Happy Hour menus. See how it all works here.
