HOW TO DRAW ELON MUSK
Stories are data with soul. This is my
letter to my younger me after my
exciting journey at the Axel Springer
Awards last month.
START CREATING …
… your career as an artist. If you feel the heat inside of you, go for it. Just try and keep your visions tight. Life will show what’s possible. Couldn’t imagine drawing one of the biggest minds at the Axel Springer Award. And that’s why it filled me with such a great joy.
GET ON THE RADAR …
… by expressing yourself in arts. Do what drives you the most and people will pay attention to you. From here it’s a journey designed for you. Just keep going and things are going to happen.
FIND YOUR STYLE …
…and learn from process. Ask yourself what truly inspires and defines you. Maybe it is your graphic studies and the fascination for street arts? Learn the basic techniques and then start to deliver yourself and your message through your style.
LOOK OUT FOR THE NEW …
…and especially for “Franka”: Your friend from the future and assistant painting the guests of the Axel Springer Award at the GIGA 5G Painting. A GigaCube of vodafone transmitted my movement data to the robot in real time. A new experience to any artist today. Not my daily business and certainly not my usual drawing style. Did you think that something like this would be possible today?
DEAR PAST …
…thank you for the lessons. Exploring the unknown with the robot „Franka“ and being part at this influencing event was exciting. At 2 am after a long day and seven days of hard work in Berlin I felt ready to go for it and asked Elon Musk for a portrait. Keep that spirit in mind.
DEAR FUTURE …
…“if you gotta choose a place to die, then mars is probably not a bad choice”, that’s what Elon Musk said. Be thankful and take new challenges. Thanks to @vodafone.de for this great opportunity to meet one of the brightest minds our our time and greetings to everybody I’ve met in Berlin.
