A problem I’ve had as a professional artist who does fine art commissions – is that often the project is a secret. Which means even though my day (and mind) is filled with drawings, paper patterns and colors related to my commission I can’t talk about it online. No posting “in progress” photos because it’d spoil the surprise for somebody.
But still the Social Media Beast must be fed.
I’ve solved this problem – in hopefully an amusing way – by posting my short-narrative work (see my last post as an example), or something about one of my artist books…Here’s a page I particularly like today from my book Dr. Bob’s Emotional Repair Program First Aid Kit:
Or posting a page from my sketchbook – like this one – which also happens to be an ebook page from my Coffee Table Book – (by the way, it is also a very good recipe for lunch):
Or posting something about one of my pattern designs: The art apparel with my pattern designs that I do for VIDA really do have my signature on them! You can see my entire signature collection here: http://shopvida.com/collections/sue-clancy
And now that I’ve told you my secret – and fed the Beast a bit – I’ll get back to work on my art commission.
