Hi, wazaap all! I'm Kim. I'm a graphic designer/illustrator from Cebu, Ph. I've been a freelancer since 2017, working for various types of graphic design services, I also do illustrations and art commissions. I have made a couple of illustrations for children's books, and I'd like to say I enjoy doing these a lot. I'm new here in upwork and my goal in creating this account is to focus mainly on illustration works, art, comics, story books, etc. 

What I'm hoping to learn from other members is the business side of things. I'm very confident in my work, I have the skills acquired over the years of enjoying and learning to draw art, however, selling the art is another thing that needs to be learned. 

My inspirations are comic book arts (specifically marvel), classic illustrations by illustrators(J.C. Leyendecker, Norman Rockwell) 

*attached is my recent illustration of my workspace; my mini studio corner focused in the creation of anything art related adventures.

I'm new to Upwork and seeking assistance in finding a suitable job. My expertise lies in copywriting, with a specialization in SEO - encompassing both on-site and off-site SEO strategies. I have a knack for crafting persuasive newsletters and possess some knowledge about CHAT GPT. While I have a strong preference for long-term collaborations, I am also open to engaging in shorter-term projects.


Thank you for your help in advance.

Hi! I'm Elizabeth. I'm learning Transcribing . I am currently living in Uganda , Africa


I'm hoping to learn to be successful in my career and I'd love to hear from others how to attract first clients. 

I love to read novels, from fantasy to historial as well as autobiographies  .I love making powerpoints. It's so much fun. I have been really into art ever since I was in my senior year of high school. I find inspiration in the novels I read and fashion in the sense of art . I  spend most of my time on my laptop and the current book that I am reading is from an  online reading platform  and my favourite book of all time is a comic book called Dork diaries which loved reading as a preteen. 

I'm currently studying BBA in Uganda Christian University,
