Hey, there guys!
If you haven’t heard about my current DA bfore, you can take a look at my last posts about it here.
For a quick reminder however, TaylorLani Artistry is both my Instagram and Redbubble dedicated to showcasing artworks I create, where my main focus portraits.
As this is my last update for the semester, just a quick overview on how TaylorLani Artistry has evolved since the begining. I started this project to get my art out there somehow, and initionally only was going to be doing so over a Redbubble store. This evolved and then moved to Instagram, where I have had much better success and found suited myself a lot better. Where it currently stands is on the gorwing idea of offering comissions for portraist as I have done before outside of my DA.
Ever since shifting my platform I have relied more so on feedback and engament that I wasn’t having before for most of my DA’s process. I would say this technically has set my project back than others, but I like to remind myself that not everyone walks the same path, especially not in a creative endeavour.
I started to engage mainly through Instagram stories, asking questions, posting personaly updates, sketches and even sales that I have made off of Redbubble. However, I only really just started to also include my twitter as a source for feedback and different types of posting like polls for my audience outside of Instagram. This has been a great addition though, as I have always shared my art on twitter even long before this semester and have had an audience which has been supportive and postive.
I have also recieved feedback from making posts of on this blog, which have open my eyes to a few different ways I can continue to develope TaylorLani Artistry. For example, making my posts and artowkr more personal and sharing more than just the final product.
A way I can do this is by drawing a focus on why the people I make artworks of inspire me, as that is the initial process of why I mke portraits to begin with. Along with even more reels and stories of the drawing process.
From here on out I do continue to keep creating content, as I have and probably always will be making art, continuing to make it a little different each time. I think the right way to go is to make my account more personal and connected to me, allowing my audience to engage with myself through my artwork.
