Hi, my dear reader! This post is a little bit different from what you’re used to. I always do my best to be as informative as possible, and I do this in different formats I hope you all like. Sometimes it’s a summed-up list, a top 7 or 10 of interesting facts, and youtube channels for example. Other times it’s an in-depth article about a specific subject. I always try to add a personal flair to the articles, but I was thinking that maybe it’s interesting for you to read about my personal musings and progress as well. As an artist, a blogger, and in person. So that’s what this is! I mean to expand on it in the future whenever it feels right. I’d love it if you let me know if you enjoy reading this or not!
First of all: Unlike most of the other articles, this one is about my own journey. How did I get where I am, and where am I at in 2021 after 4 years of training myself and 3 years of actually working in the field. Although this article is about me: I’m just using myself as an example, what I struggled with, what really helped me out, and some other useful lessons along the way. This article is especially interesting for people who think they won’t be able to do what I do, or what other artists do because of age, skill, resources, and so on. But also for people who want to be well-prepared and know what to expect when they aim for an art career.
So let me take you on a stroll and don’t hesitate to scroll past the first chapter if my pre-art-age doesn’t interest you that much!
