A few days ago I signed up to a freelance platform. Now I made a proposal to be selected for a commission as an illustrator. The platform warns the users that usually they only get selected after their fourth or fifth proposal. Lets wait and see.
The work to be commissioned is exactly the kind I would like to do as a freelancer. A single illustration with specific instructions. I sure hope to comply to the demands of this potential client and it would be great if other commissions of this kind would appear.
Even greater would be having my work noticed and directly asked for. Quite a way of making a living.
