What is Instagram for you?
Why/when did you decide to start sharing your work there?
After I finished my first ever zine, Hatchette, I was posting a lot of sketches and doodles on my personal Insta which was grand but it always felt a little bit messy. Doing that zine was a really significant turning point in my creative output (mostly because I was actually putting out something creative after years of not doing that thing) and after I retired it, I knew I wanted to go in a bigger, brighter direction with my art and give it a room of it’s own, so to speak. So I started an ‘artstagram’ and seeing all of my work together in one concentrated place was really effective. I had somewhere I could go every day and post a little something, be it a half baked illustration or a full tilt GIF, and know I was getting it to an audience who actually wanted to see it and would enjoy it. Instagram’s been excellent as far as my motivation to create things goes.
