I am an Artist

I have no idea, why it is so hard to accept the status of Artist. Drawing was my hobby since i can remember. My father had even once joined me in a drawing class in summer vacations when i was kid, which i think only lasted for 2-3 days. After that life happened. Studies, Job …. made it impossible to draw anything.

Professionally, i am a software engineer. But currently i am not working. After marriage and no work, i started to draw. Initially, it was one drawing per day but later it changed to 1 – 2 drawing per day, depending on the speed and size of the work. Now a days, it is again impossible to draw even 1 drawing after having a kid. But i still try.

After lots of encouragement from friends and family members, i thought of opening shops to sell my art online. But i still can’t say that i am an artist. I don’t know why… maybe because

  1. i fear what my relatives might think of me or my art (as professionally i am a software engineer)
  2. being a self-taught artist is not good enough
  3. nobody would understand or like my work

What do you think? Is my fear reasonable or pointless?

The Start

I’m starting lots of new things this year. It’s a late start but it is a small step forward.

First start is “Facebook”. Facebook page for business use. I am not a big social media user; I’d rather work on drawing/painting. But now anyone anywhere can share artwork and find people who appreciate what they are doing. It sure makes making art more fun! I have people from all over the world giving me thumbs up and likes which I really appreciate. Because of which, i think having a Facebook page is necessary for both business point of view and to keep in touch with people.

Another new start is a website. Again for a professional front. As a novice, i am trying to keep everything simple and easy to use which I’m sure, will evolve as i learn and improve.

This blog will be a spot for me to write or share others work about art – which could include anything really relating to hand-drawn drawing or digital one. Or just on some random subject which i would like to share a view point on.
To anyone who has read this far, thanks a lot!
