Hi, I’m Vyacheslav Kantor! I’m here to delight you with art, share the steps in creating it and give you a means of being a successful artist. Wait! How rude of me! If you’re having trouble with my name, please call me Vye. How are you!? Pleased to meet you!
What is an Artist?
Who is Vyacheslav Kantor?
I’m in my early thirties, and I decided that art is my thing because I read that the Chinese rabbit zodiac is an excellent painter. Yes, go ahead and laugh, but I believe in that stuff.
With a pair of dexterous hands, Rabbits have a gift for calligraphy and painting, as well as tailoring and cooking.The Year of the Rabbit
Vyacheslav Kantor graduated from Brooklyn College with a Computer Science and Multimedia degree.
At present, I work with a city agency as a full stack developer in NYC. In my spare time, I draw with my digital pen or GraphGear 1000. I had used all sorts of software and gained a lot of experience. For example, feel free to check out my LinkedIn profile. Also, a shout out to the Blender community and Sketchbook Pro because they are super useful to me!
How did I start?
I started my blog in October of 2012. My goal was to learn to code. At that time, I wasn’t drawing. Since that time, I’ve discovered useful advice on YouTube and podcasting world that pushed me to pursue my passion. However, it has become increasingly harder in finding the time to maintain my love while having a full-time job.
Age has nothing to do with it!
If you haven’t started drawing yet, don’t worry, it takes time, and I know people who don’t care for it at all, so you are ahead of the game. A few things that helped me in the past were drawing during my commute to work. You can try joining an art meetup to challenge yourself to grow. Also, it’s worth checking out artstation for challenges.
Help Others Become Striving Artists! 😍
As an artist, we need to be interested in learning more about the digital and traditional world. Let’s dream of a realm where we can inspire other artists with our work. For example, a writer can invite an artist to create a piece of art for a featured image. Thus, go out there and look for internship/job/meetup to challenge yourself, share your findings and inspire others. In other words, let us grow and gain experience together.
