In the first 3 years of high school, I had a class which was literally called “Drawing”.
I am not sure if this is common in other countries or only specific in the country I grew up in.
Theoretically you could fail on this class, but the teacher happened to be a nice guy.
Those who didn’t do a particularly good job, got the “just passing grade”.
And I was among those.
My spatial ability being close to zero did play a part in that.
That’s why, when I decided to study Industrial Design, I even surprised myself.
It took me less than two weeks to realize that I made a huge mistake and to switch to Electrical Engineering.
What was I thinking?!
Electricity fortunately did suit me and after graduating, I worked in that same field for 9 years.
Until I quit my job to take a break from the horribly cruel cooperate world.
That was one year ago.
And what have I been doing in the past year?
Ironically, I have been drawing, A LOT.
And I have even published a Children’s book with my own drawings.
Shameless promotion intermezzo 😉 :
GET MY BOOK NOW FOR ONLY $2.99
My 2nd book will be published soon.
But after that, I am going to do something I am VERY excited about….!
I will dedicate myself to write & illustrate children’s books teaching about electricity and hopefully be part of creating future engineers!
I have posted this a while ago, but it suitable for this post as well:
A lesson about how to charge your phone faster
What do you guys think of this idea? 😀
