Hi my name is Craig Gordon, and I’ve recently launched my own business Gandi Artist Designs.
Thanks for taking the time to view my profile, I'm going to try and explain to you a little about myself and why I’ve suddenly taken the leap of faith and decided to follow my dream!
So a little about me, I’m 28 years old, and from the North East of England (and no I'm not a Geordie ), I'm a cat lover and have two menacing fur children Marley and Kai. I love tattoos, rock/metal and all things to do with art!!
My interest in drawing and art started when I was a kid, I was a little rebel and spent most of my time grounded inside so to cure my boredom I picked up the sketch pad and colouring crayons and haven’t put them down since...well only for better materials.
Since then I’ve used art as a form of escapism and expression, and after a succession of crappy jobs and wild parties, one thing remained constant and that was my obsession with drawing. It was even spray painted all over my walls at my first apartment, much to the dismay of my landlord! So i decided to get myself into gear and go to college, albeit a little later than most but I got there non the less! After outgrowing my wild ways and sticking in, with only a hint of rebellion and lack of authority I went on to study an art degree at university!
Upon finishing University, I got a normal job worked my ass off, but It didn’t fill the void and I felt like something was missing, I wasn’t for filling or doing something that I wanted, needed to do even. So once again I said adios to the job and decided to embark on this new adventure and work twice as hard for less pay, but to do something I love to do and share my talent with the rest of the world!
That’s where you guys come in, currently I’m taking commissions, drawing sketches, creating prints, and selling t shirts online, but my ambition is bigger than that! Eventually I want my own store, not just selling my designs but collaborating with others and creating a network of artists making funky kick ass things!
I know Its hard to make ends meet myself we could all do with a little help every now and again, but Im just looking for contributions that would help me further my art career so I can buy new materials, pay for advertising and put some money back into this crazy dream of mine so I can keep going and keep most importantly keep it growing!
After all what is a world without art??
