Catering to an audience is a challenge on its own. Being a pro artist is, like any other profession, a form of business. Some people may not want to make money from their art and see it as a hobby instead, but this article it’s all about the artist that wants to be a part- or full-time artist. And an artist that wants to cater to multiple target audiences. Something I very much recommend as one type of specialization may dry up at any time. Others though may flourish. Having more than one outlet for your art is very beneficial.
Having more than one audience is totally fine. Honestly: Catering to more than one audience means that you’re having a good business practice!
Especially when it comes to the artistic world, its very beneficial if you have more than one project going on. It will help you continue your work even if there’s a crisis or recession going on. If one kind of project doesn’t work: The other might do very good, or at least sustain you.
Hi, my dear reader! This post is a little bit different from what you’re used to. I always do my best to be as informative as possible, and I do this in different formats I hope you all like. Sometimes it’s a summed-up list, a top 7 or 10 of interesting facts, and youtube channels for example. Other times it’s an in-depth article about a specific subject. I always try to add a personal flair to the articles, but I was thinking that maybe it’s interesting for you to read about my personal musings and progress as well. As an artist, a blogger, and in person. So that’s what this is! I mean to expand on it in the future whenever it feels right. I’d love it if you let me know if you enjoy reading this or not!
The animal kingdom is full of weird specializations and features. A mutation happens and suddenly an animal has a different color, or a new feature. A stronger jaw, a higher top speed, you name it. Specializations are caused by little errors in the DNA of an individual. Most of these changes go completely undetected, but sometimes they’re very evident. More often than not this mutation doesn’t change much about the animal, but when it does it either means the demise of this animal, or success. And when success hits, this specific animal will likely be able to have more offspring than it’s other species members.
There is a lot of controversy around Inktober. In 2020 the name Inktober was officially legally claimed by the person that came up with Inktober in 2009: Jake Parker. But what does this really mean? Why did he do this? And what does that mean for people joining Inktober? Tagging on social media, and selling your art under the name Inktober? And is Jake Parker really an a-hole, like many people claim he is? Lets dive right into it!
