Got just about the most flattering message from someone. I wouldn’t really consider myself ‘known’, but this is certainly a boost to my ego!
First Question: Any kind of exposure I have is entirely due to social media. It’s one of the best ways to get exposure for artists, in my opinion. Because I chose to do pieces revolving around books and video games, I inadvertently carved out a place with a large fan following. Through social media I targeted those fan bases and it grew from there.
Second Question: I’m ashamed to say I dropped out of college. I didn’t stay in long enough to reap the benefits, so what you see in my work was entirely self-taught. That isn’t to say you shouldn’t go to college. You should if you want to take it to the next level. It’s a way to get your foot in the door in a highly competitive field. I’m not making the big $$ doing art (well, actually, I’m not currently making money at all) but I love it!
I want more questions. It makes me feel awesome and loved. >.> No judging.
