The Lone Pencilwww.ArtPal.com/thelonepencil
I’m a young artist just finishing secondary school. Art has been my passion since I could hold a pencil, while I started developing my special technique of layering watercolour pencils at thirteen in a drawing course, with which I displayed pictures in a local exhibition each year. I like to draw animals and creatures that don’t really exist, like dragons, or flying pigs. The symbol of the flying pig is special to me, as I believe it is possible to achieve anything in life, and nothing is as improbable as a flying pig.
Being torn between two equally strong passions, art and history, I have decided to pursue history as a career, and art as a hobby, as I felt that if I had to rely on selling art, I would need to shift to topics that are slightly more mainstream than my usual ideas, and I wanted to continue drawing what inspires me most. Having recently turned eighteen, I thought I’d give selling art online a go, since the area I live in is rather devoid of art-lovers interested in buying dragons and flying pigs.
