7. How has your experience been with your social media account(s) for your art? What are the positive outcomes? Is there any negative outcomes?
So far, my Instagram and Twitter experiences have been very positive. I’ve never received negativity or suffered any major blows that can generally come with social media and I’m blessed for that!
I’m worried in the back of my head, of reaching that point where I find someone has been stealing my art, tracing my art, or trying to copy my exact style. Artists just want credit where credit is due. It’s okay to be inspired and ask for permission before using pieces, but a lot of people just don’t care which is hurtful.
I mean, we’re all pulling from each other as artists for inspiration, but there are always artist horror stories. I would hate to find my art being sold on some shirts that I didn’t give permission for and was not being properly compensated.
But I’m also not going to let that stop me and I’m just going to pray and hope that I can continue moving further without that happening as long as possible.
Most people are just kind and encouraging and know to credit the artist behind the work.
I feel like I have positive art bubble around me right now.
