Meet the Artist: @zaftig.art

7. When did you decide to start a social media account for your art? Were you nervous? Excited?

It was earlier this year!

I had posted some small pieces on my personal page, but realized I wanted a separate space to work on my art.

It was terrifying putting myself out there, but with the support of pals and my partner, I just went for it and kept posting my doodles.

It’s been a wild few months but I’m so happy I got over that fear.

8. How has your experience been with your social media account(s) for your art? What are the positive outcomes? Is there any negative outcomes?

It’s been a real humbling and touching experience to be among other artists on Instagram.

I am most grateful to the many fat positive artists who put themselves out there, creating representation for those who need it most.

I love that I found a welcoming and critical community and I get to be a part of it! They keep me on my toes and keep me inspired and it’s my pleasure to promote their work every day!

The only negative experience comes from having to block fetishists and trolls, but it’s necessary to ensure the safety of the people who just want to see art.
