Grand Masters


Before we judge, we should see what the greats saw. By seeing what several of the great saw and adding their gaze added to ours, we will be able to see farther and farther than them.

"We are like dwarves on the shoulders of giants. We can see more, and farther than them, not because of the acuity of our eyes or the height of our bodies, but because we are lifted by its great height"

Do you want to improve your drawings?

Do you really want to improve your drawings?

Most people who ask me say yes, if they want to improve their drawings. And when I ask them what they do for better, they tell me “I draw a lot, I copy things from instagram or pinterest”.

I’m sure you’ve done something like this. However, let me ask you, after so many hours of drawing, after so many copies, has the effort really paid off?

I don’t mean if you’ve improved a little bit, something always gets better, I mean if really, the result has been extraordinary.

Do you want extraordinary results?

Stop copying Bad Drawings Right Now

Stop wasting time copying other people’s mistakes, because that’s what you do when you pull down any pinterest or instagram drawing and copy it. Because, not only, you’re copying the drawing, but you’re also copying its owner’s mistakes. 

And when I say copying, I mean learning, internalizing and making those mistakes yours, with everything that entails. It’s hard to get rid of bad habits, a lot. I see that at the Atelier every day. 

Believe me, there are tons of bad drawings on the net with problems and mistakes of all kinds. If you want to learn and improve, copy worthwhile drawings that you can get an apprenticeship from.
