Newspaper cartoonists for the summer

My kids will be busy this summer. They were commissioned to do cartoon works for a tabloid. It’s not the kind of job wherein they are required to stay in the office from 8 to 5. The kids are only required to submit their work through email. They started yesterday and these are their published works which I’m happy to share here. By the way, whatever earnings they are about to receive from their summer job will go to their personal savings. This (cartoon work) will be a good learning experience for my kids to further improve their  drawing skills especially for my daughter who is taking up Digital Arts. She can add this to her portfolio when she applies for work in the future.

I’m so proud and happy that a lot of friends take notice of my daughter’s color painting. Aside from landscape she also draws human faces too. I will share her recent drawing in my next post.

Some of my friends are wondering if my daughter had attended art classes before. I told them she has yet to attend one. My daughter learns to draw and paint on her own. She reads art books and research for reference photos as often as she can.

Another friend is encouraging her to join contest to hone her talent and give her more confidence in herself and her abilities.

Thanks to all of you who appreciate my daughter’s talent.  🙂
