This Pakistani artist is going places

 

It’s usually said that if you’re an artist you’re probably going to die hungry and poor. Why is it that art and business have to be mutually exclusive with one another? There is nothing wrong with artists using their talents to earn a living for themselves. The more an artist can become self-sustainable, the more others will get encouraged to follow their dreams.

“I started experimenting with Adobe Draw Illustrator which is an easy app for the beginners who are into digital art.  After struggling in my learning phase, and my friends telling me that I should stop drawing, within 2-3 months, I was able to hone my craft”, she told MangoBaaz.

 

The best part about her designs is that they’re all printed on cell phone covers that are available for sale

“I learnt illustrations just because I wanted to. But I realized people on Instagram,  are using their skill to earn. Nothing is better than earning money through something you love. I sold almost 30+ on Redbubble in very little time. Recently, I gained some other opportunities as well”, Raafia shared.
