Good day to you all!! Hope you're all doing fine !
As I'm writing I'm currently living a huge change in my life which could lead me either to success or to succumb.
Long story short, my job was getting more and more unbearable till I got ill and had to stay a week on medical break. I got better but when I returned to my job it started all over again, it was all on a psychological level that leaded me further into serious depression... That's when I had to draw a line and ask myself if that job was really what I needed or if I was only ruining my life. Sure, it is a tough time for everyone and having a job nowadays is almost a privilege, but what can you do when you get to a point where you see no future, people treat you like scum no matter how much you try to please them, and your hard work is never considered because they want to make you leave so they can have a place for another coworker who is friends with the boss? I'm twenty three this year, if I don't take some risks to change my life now when am I going to do it?
So I took health instead of monetary safety, and now I'm trying to achieve my dream, which is to live thanks to art. After all that's why I'm here on this planet, if I have one bit of talent and one thousand interests I better use them all!
Of course this is a big gambling game, but I've never felt so free my entire life! Waking up in the morning and knowing that this is how I'll live from now on!
I also had a trip in Germany and took pictures to an offroad race and actually sold them !
So yeah, from now on I'll be a freelance photographer and eventually journalist, and a part time artist. I'm planing to open an Etsy store soon, but for now I'm focusing on producing more art pieces! Until then I'll start posting my sculptures here on DA with prices and info, and eventually I'll also take commissions!
Of course I'll need your support now more than ever, and also I have to thank you for your support till now because it's thanks to you that I actually believe artists do have a chance.
