Navigating this creative journey has been full of ups and downs. Follow the adventure here:
The best advice given to me about social media is to update CONSISTENTLY. Social Media has become a very useful tool (when used consciously) for making my work visible to my friends, colleagues, and art followers. It is free to use and a great way to let people know what you are working on. I try to make an update at least once a week. My updates include, sketches, artist interviews, finished art work and up coming events.
I love DesignSponge's "Social Media 101" article. It really details how to get started and stay organized because managing social media can be overwhelming.
