Collection of my work from 2014

Im here to say thank you to everyone!

My life goal has been achieved . As some of you may know ( the people who have been following me from the the early days ) i set my goal at age 26, and well i turned 26 few days ago.

When i was 17 years old i started art school and from a very early age i understood that to achieve greatness you need to sacrifice  a lot. And it needs to be build on dedication and repeated failure . I was drawing what i would consider lot for a 17 year old one - but that was far from enough.

And at the age of 19 i started Collage ( art degree ) and gave my self a unrealistic challenge that i was going to do no matter what.

The challenge was to draw, tattoo, airbrush, paint a pic per day no matter what. It was many hard years of work . I tried everything possible and pushed my own bounders far to many times. When my wrist started hurting from to much drawing i used my left hand to draw instead ( i felt like no excuses could stop my path ). When i could not draw because of what ever reason i felt incredibly bad, almost sick because i thought i was missing out. There was no time to be wasted.
Countless hours spend creating , copying ,modifying ,erasing , building and repeating the process over and over again. I was like a sponge, sucking in what ever when ever i could learn about my craft. Taking the ideas of other people and improving them/ changing them and adding my process to them.

So after spamming the internet for years with at least one post per day i have finally achieved my goal.

So my goal was to become a good/ great artist at the age of 26 and to be well know  / famous in a way. Well i guess i can say i did it. My facebook fan page got 100 000 followers my instagram page got 135 000 followers. And all of the other pages i use  got about 100 000 as well.

I was featured countless times on some of the biggest art pages on the internet . I had interviews with large art magazines. I was on TV and im sponsored by one of the biggest pencil producers in the world. So yeah i guess i did it hehe =D

To be honest if feels great , it feels like a huge boulder has been removed from my shoulder. So now the question is will i continue this path ?
Im not sure, the last years i was consumed by art that i did not have time to do anything else. Dont get me wrong i love what i do and i dont even know if i could stop. =D

But i will definitely start on new projects that include creating ( but not necessarily art )
When i set my goal i had the option to choose two paths. The art path ( that i took ) or the music path. I was and still am very interested into music but i felt to get good at something i needed to give up one of the, and at the time i felt like art was a safer way to go. So i quit my band and stopped practicing vocals/ guitar and started investing all of my time in art.

Writing this as a thank you and as a insight to all the kids who dream about being an artist. Its hard and not very rewarding for years. You will not get good over night . You will need to build your foundation first and construct your dream one brick at the time.

Work with understanding and a critical eye. Work with a passion and a goal in mind.  And maybe one day if you have worked hard enough you will be here where i stand now.

I still have a lot to learn my self, but at this point i feel that no mountain is hard to climb and no top is unreachable. I got a solid and huge foundation that i can continue building on.

Once again thank you for all of your wonderful support and all the great feedback that i got during all of these years. =)

Last year i did a huge composition of my work called : Evolution of my art :

You can see how my art evolved during the years ( 8 -25 )

This post is very inspiring I must say. Recently, I've been thinking about college/school and I really love what I do and that's drawing. I've been completely lost about what to do with my life because art isn't necessarily the most stable career at times for people, but this does give me hope. In addition i'm going to work harder than I have been and I will do my best to work to my full potential. Thank you for inspiring me.
