Printing my imagination to make room for more


I think it's pretty cool you came here to read my story, I'm not used to telling it, but if you're interested I'll gladly tell it :)

So my name is Cedrique, and I've been drawing for a very very long time. I think I was around 6 years old when my mother agreed to let me go to drawing classes every Wednesday. It was so much fun to make something out of nothing, like printing your imagination.

Between ages 6 and 12 I drew a lot, I experimented with large sheets of paper to draw posters which were hung in the classroom of my elementary school (I was very proud ofcourse)

At age 12 drawing classes stopped unfortunately, so I replaced with drawing in every schoolbook I had. Most lessons I only drew, and never paid attention. Which kind of annoyed some teachers, but I got good grades, so I got a free pass :)

Somewhere between 12 and 18 I stopped drawing as much, I had to focus on building a career and going to university. A lot of years I spent on multiple educations and jobs, not drawing.

But then came Dungeons & Dragons, a tabletop rpg. The game really sparked my creativity, and somehow I ran into a dnd shirt while looking for dnd dice. I thought: "Well I can make that too!" and so I did. I made it for me and my friend, and made 2 or 3 other designs because I was in the flow. I put those designs up on a marketplace and forgot about them.

One year later I logged on to that Marketplace and was very surprised to see that the designs were sold like 30 times! It was my first realization that people could actually like my designs enough to spend money on them!

So from then on I drew as much as I could, and I'm trying to sell enough to be able to work part-time and do what I always loved most: Printing my imagination by drawing. :)

If you're still here then I would like to thank you so much for reading my story. Hang around and check out some photo's and video's. If there's anything I can help you with just let me know, always happy to help.

Right now I'm gonna continue drawing, bye! :)
