FREELANCE ARTIST (Art category.)
Majority of the people love a piece of art that can actually speak to us. The uniqueness of these paintings and drawings comes from the emotion put in place by an artiste when doing the drawing. I am well aware that the emotional part comes from how talented and passionate an artist is but it is complimented again by how skilled the artiste is. Some of these skills artists get from earning a certificate at art school. If an artiste has a full-time job they can also make an extra earning from setting up an art gig that will help them showcase their talents to the world and attract a base of fashion designers, and animation companies just to mention a few.
