Doing what we want in life is the dream we all search for, it doesn't matter what it is. Whether it is drinking 'bin juice' or rearranging flowers, we each have our own idea of what we would do best in this short existence we call life. The newsflash is that many of us find it difficult to live the life we want, but to me, it seems simple. If you want something bad enough, you can make it happen no matter how ridiculous it might sound to those around you.
Nuno is a such a person to which I have alluded above. He is someone with a rare talent and an even rarer drive to make it happen. His customers are so stoked on what he does it is hard for him to keep up and having seen some of his work 'in the flesh' I can see why. His illustrations are simply stunning and believe that the pictures and videos of his work just don't do it justice.
Without further waffle, I give you Nuno Draws.
Nuno comes from a conservative and unlikely background and he had to break the mold to begin his journey. His work has been met with nothing but praise the world over and he has been involved in colab art pieces with other gifted people in his genre.
As a guy who works in IT, Nuno can only work on his art when he has time and while many have called for him to make the leap into the void and ditch the office he remains a realist and comfortable in the thought that this will come in time.
Customising anything from the side of vans, to motorcycle helmets to surfboards and fins, Nuno is a shining example of someone who is living the life he wants and doing things on his own terms. To me, this is the Shangri-La of existence.
We all have the skills and the right to do what we want, all we have to do is believe. So get out there and drink that 'bin juice' if that's your bag. Me, I am content with just tapping random words on my keyboard for you my unsuspecting audience. Amen.
