013: Who do you think you are?
Wherein we get to know each other better...
It’s week 13 of DRAW or DIE. My lucky number. I wanted to do something special this week. I would like this week to be ALL ABOUT YOU.
We have over 1100 members on this list as of writing this. I’ve heard from a few dozen of you over these weeks in DMs or emails. And I know there are many more reading and staying. How do I know this? We’ve had zero unsubscribes to the list, and we’re holding strong at 45% average open rate on the weekly email, that’s about double what a “great” open rate is on typical emails. (Sorry, my day job creeping in…)
Anyways, I know you’re out there reading and I’d love to get to know more about you, your art, no matter what level you’re at. Don’t be shy.
A great place to do this would simply be in the comments here on this newsletter.
Go ahead and introduce yourselves. Maybe use the following prompts to kick off some conversation, or feel free to add what you’d like:
Name and where in the world are you?
Type of art you do, or aspire to do?
Social channels or portfolio link. (I encourage all DorD members to follow and support each other if you have the time!)\
What age did you realize you wanted to be an artist? Do you remember your moment?
What is the biggest thing you struggle with or have struggled with as an artist?
Are there any topics you’d like to dive deeper into together?
If you had a magic wand that only worked on you and your art, that only had one charge left, how would you use it? What’s your big wish?
I’m really looking forward to checking out your work and conversations in the comments.
This week’s prompt is “SECRET HANDSHAKE”. Do with that as you will. As always, tag #drawordiechallenge out there in the wild so myself and others here can find you.
ON THE ROAD AGAIN: ANAHEIM JUNE 21-25th
I’ll be in Anaheim, CA attending VidCon from Tuesday June 21 through Saturday the 25th. If anyone is privy to meetup for a drink or a draw, don’t be a stranger.
Until next time, back to the drawing board!
