When they talk about the biography of the artist, sculptor, the musician is still sure that the people of art live poorly, feed on the mouths and, in general, work for food (Millionaire Nikas Safronov is a separate conversation). The absolute majority of people are 100% confident that they will not be fed art.
The hero of today’s story, despite the appearance of the «Good Pukhlyaka», a shy glance and work with glass managed to earn very well on his work, which grew out of a children’s dream.
What did you dream about in childhood?
For example, I dreamed of becoming a foreman and guarding a forest from poachers, take care of animals, write books like Svarent or Bianki. Children’s dream crashed on a harsh reality — I was simply not let go to another city study.
Tom Frouin all childhood dreamed of a kaleidoscope. He himself does not know why. Once, comrade for school gave him to see a funny thick tube with a hole at the end. Looking there, on the opposite side of the tube, he discovered beautiful, iridescent of the rainbow, patterns.
Changing colored pictures so shocked the boys, that he began to peer his parents to buy him such a toy.
Explicit is over.
When the boy graduated from school, he didn’t even stand the question to go further. The answer was unambiguous: engage in art. The boy wanted to prove the father that Kaleidoscope is not only a toy. Therefore, every drawing, every boy’s sketch was similar to the colors of the kaleidoscope.
I will not tire you, dear reader, by listing where, when and to whom he studied, what awards he received how many awards won. This is, in fact, it does not matter.
Another thing is!
It is thanks to his children’s dream, a man was able to create a masterpiece. In 2012, a program for the reconstruction of old buildings was launched in New York. Under the distribution, all the houses on which water tower were installed were installed — they lagged and carried a danger to people.
One of the towers, thanks to the efforts of Tom Friin managed to save. He left only a stand from the tower, and instead she installed a subtle metal frame, inside which one thousand large pieces of glass was inserted.
Tom found investors for their work, which were able to fully finance the purchase of materials, promising them with good profits.
After that, I took and presented the Tower of the city.
What about investors?
They wanted to sue the sculptor, but he persuaded them to wait two years.
The tower so well fit into the urban environment, so pleased the eyes of the citizens, which became one of the inalienable symbols of New York. Tom patented the folding of the laying on the donated city of the tower and sold it to enterprises-manufacturers of souvenir products. With each released card, cast candles, copies of the tower, and even the mugs in the form of a newly new symbol of the city, Tom began to receive deductions.
The patented drawing is printed even on cars, airplanes, buildings, banners, trousers, t-shirts, coats, umbrellas and many other things. There are no restrictions for fantasy flight. Pay and print where you want.
Already in 2015, Tom Frouin was able to completely pay off investors, and over this earned more than one million dollars. Since then, the incident of the sculptor from sales of copyright and souvenirs is doubled every year.
Kaleidoscope Tom Frouin bought himself from its first income received from the use of copyright to the patented drawing. On this day, the boy turned 39 years old.
This could be completed on this, but I was interested in this question:
And what would happen if the father wanted the request of the Son and bought him a kaleidoscope?
Would you achieve the heights of the heights now?
What do you think?
