Five Key Elements of a Great RoutineInterview by Flynn Ringroseimaginism
is to wake up hours before your day job begins and spend that time doing your own stuff. This is very effective, but it’s difficult to keep up with because it often means you have to get up at 4:00 or 5:00 in the morning and that’s especially difficult in the Winter when the Sun isn’t even up at those times!
This is great because, one, you’re beginning the day doing a hard thing which makes you feel good because you started off with something challenging. Two, when you get up hours before work and do your own art, you’ll see results, that you created something, and that makes you feel even more productive. Why give your best hours, and this is weird to say, but why give your best hours to your job? Why not give it to yourself which will in turn, benefit your job?
don’t do emails until the afternoon. If you email them in the morning, then they might respond to you in
A Guide to Effective TaggingA new method to promote and discover art has been released to the community in the form of Tags! When submitting art, adding relevant tags to your deviations will help viewers discover art of interest to them and give your work more exposure.wreckling
You can add tags based on a variety of things, be it subject matter, themes, medium used, fandom, or anything else you feel is important.
Use these tips to make the most of tags and help your art to find its audience:
Keep it simple. The less complicated the tag, the easier your art is to discover.
Be specific. If you take a picture of a rose, tagging it as #flower, while correct, won’t get your art as much attention as tagging it #rose will. You can, of course, tag both.
Tag efficiently. If your art is based on Lord of the Rings, tag it #LordOfTheRings and/or #lotr. You don’t need to tag every combination — t
Schoolism's misson to make affordable educationhttps://www.kickstarter.com/projects/bobbychiu/schoolism-subscriptions-art-education-made-afforda
10 years ago, I took on a personal mission to make art education affordable to all. I started by teaching people on the subways for free. The group was called "Bobby Chiu's Toronto Subway Sketch Group." I would do this every Sunday for 5 years straight (as long as I was in town). But after travelling extensively over those years, I realized that there are too many others that don't have access to great education.
In an ideal world it shouldn't matter where we happen to be born, how much we happen to make, or what our parents do for a living. Artists should all be able to afford the top education and we should be able to do this without taking out giant loans that take years to pay off.
All that should determine our success is how hard we work at our craft
Through Schoolism's new subscription program, we intend to make this into a reality.
