I’m sure you’ve heard of the saying “it’s who you know” in show biz. Well, that applies to the illustration biz as well. Making connections is the best thing you can do for your business and your quality of life. When you make new friends, colleagues, and acquaintances, not only can you bring value to them, but they can do the same for you.
When it comes to sharing value, I thought it would be easy to type everything I know about illustration down and share it in a blog post format. It’s not bad, don’t get me wrong, but I never thought leveraging video would be easier.
Blogging. Everyone’s doing it nowadays. Digital Marketers, Companies, and especially thought leaders in their specific profession. With all the countless blog posts and content that I’ve come across, it seems the group that blogs the least are the illustrators. Why is that?
Maybe illustrators don’t have the time to blog.
Maybe illustrators feel like their art should speak for themselves.
Maybe illustrators don’t have anything to say.
Regardless of those excuses, there are plenty of reasons for an illustrator to blog, and I have three for you.
