I’m Fatma , I’m a cleaner (I and my brother have to take care of our family so we both work), and I’m currently living in Italy.
In my spare time I read books and comics books(mainly manga), I write, play videogame and draw illustrations and some comic strips.
Now I’m working on my own webcomic (and I hope I would start posting it on internet soon!! Wish me good luck!! <è.é>). I want to become a full time illustrator and comic artist since I was a kid, now I’m 21 and my road is still long!
BUT I believe if I don’t give up, I will reach my goal! These are the words which inspire me more:
1. Where shall I begin, please your Majesty?' he asked. 'Begin at the beginning,' the King said gravely, 'and go on till you come to the end: then stop.' [L. Carroll, Alice in Wonderland] (For short: stop wondering, start making something!!)
2. All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamer of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible. [T. E. Lawrence] (Also 10 min per day is better than nothing. )
3. Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better. [S. Beckett] (Mistakes will sharpen your skills, and make you better/stronger artist/person. Some people criticizes politely, other seems to want only insult, but one must be open and analyses every criticism, in order to level UP!)
If you read all I tried to ( because my English is a bit bad >.> sorry) write, as a thank you, I wanted to share with you my 3 stars. These words light me up when I was frustrated and confused (how could I not!?! At my age there are plenty of good artists out there *^* !!)
I hope they may light your dark days too. See ya!
Girl playing videogames. I like it already. I wish you good luck with your plans and also would love to see some of your work. You can post it here some day.
