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 is on her second internship program in a popular publishing company that maintains several magazines in both online and print media. She was lucky that the art director of the online magazine appreciates her curriculum vitae including her portfolio of art samples.
On her second day she was able to design a picture of a popular love team and it was published in the online cover. N was so ecstatic.
Her first intern company she said has helped her enhance her ability to design images assigned to her.
Here’s one of the few art samples that she submitted to the publishing company.
