The Art Of Persistence


🎨 Pink Bull, 30x38cm/11.8x15", Faber Castell Polychromos pencils on 220gsm paper 🎨

Life has been testing my patience and determination this year: 12 months and over 400 pages for a special visa application. So I picked up my beloved Faber Castell pencils and did my own pink interpretation of the animal that symbolises PERSISTENCE. 🐂

Maybe some of you can relate and let this drawing remind you of the power of NEVER GIVING UP..


Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence.

Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent.

Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb.

Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts.

Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent."✨

~Calvin Coolidge
