Hello I am Simon. Welcome to my art page and welcome to the best place for you to become a great artist!
I will help you with free drawing lessons and in general with different things about art and a good mindset.
How I became an Artist after studying Engineering
Yes it’s true I studied and finished my master’s degree in automotive engineering. In the last semester of my master’s degree I was in Barcelona to write my master thesis. During that time I learned a lot about myself and about my dreams. At first you have to know that I am from Germany and Germans tend to play very safe. Means a lot of us plan every step very carefully and want to have a safe future. NO RISKS!
When I was a child I used to draw a lot but of course only easy stuff like some anime drawings etc. I was very interested in drawing and computer animation but my teachers in school told me that you can’t earn money with that and that I should better learn something with a better outlook and a good earning. That’s why I lost my interest and concentrated on finishing school, making an apprenticeship and studying. Of course it wasn’t a bad decision to do that, but I think I lost a very important part of myself. REAL PASSION!
During the time in Barcelona I saw a lot of great art, great artists, people with dreams and fewer sorrows and a very different lifestyle then in Germany. I really started loving it, but in my brain was still the German part of me that told me: “Find a got job in Germany, buy a house and be safe”. When I came back to Germany I had a really bet time because the difference to the lifestyle that I had in Barcelona was so big and I lost my vision of the future. I searched a job, found one and worked a lot in an office. But at the same time I realized that I had to start with something beautiful. ART!
December 2016 was the month that changed everything. I went to art shop in our city and bought a set of farber castell graphite pencils. In the following weeks I watched a lot of YouTube videos and finally started with my first portrait. It took me about two or three hours until I finished it and I was pretty proud. Of course it was just a beginner portrait, but it wasn’t bad and I decided to try again soon.
That Portrait was the second one.
What happened then was that I tried AGAIN and AGAIN and AGAIN. Every portrait took me more and more hours because I wanted to make it as good as I can. I am sure that I have found the part of me that was lost. MY CREATIVITY. Something that allows me to be CREATIVE. Something TIMELESS. Something that people LOVE.
I participated in drawing courses on weekends and learned a lot.
Of course after one year I am not at the end of my road. But you can see with your own eyes what I was able to learn in just one year.
Follow me on my journey and learn from and with me.
I always thought that I can’t be a good artist until I tried very hard. If you want to be an artist too but you think that you can’t do it. JUST START. I will help you with your MINDSET and also with the first steps in art and drawing. I think I am a very good teacher and I plan to show you everything I know and create some free drawing lessons and free art lessons. I hope I can give you a part of my visions and passion. I am sure that you also can BECOME A GREAT ARTIST if you want it!
