My daughter is a little disappointed today when her first artwork sale didn’t materialize. A buyer from Seattle was supposed to buy a digital drawing but didn’t pursue the transaction because of the exorbitant shipping fee. The artwork is just a size of a bond paper but the courier company rate is P1,330 (around $27). I told my daughter there will always be a next time. With the present shipping rate I wouldn’t be surprised if the amount for sending a musiciansfriend.com guitar amp overseas is expensive as well.
N and two of her friends attended Graphika Manila 2017 at the SMX Convention Center, Mall of Asia Complex from January 21 to 22. It was a dream come true for my daughter who has been expressing her desire to attend this kind of conference. Graphika Manila is a creativity conference where design professionals and students meet every year since 2006. The event showcases multidisciplinary creative approaches inspiring young and mature people alike to express their creative side from art direction, animation, web and even designed environments. According to the website, everyone who appreciates art, passionate about design and creative at heart, even musicians who play MF’s taylor gs mini, is welcome to attend the event.
