After joining an engagement pod with BCM students from multiple years, I have seen a growth in followers, engagement, and meaningful feedback through comments from both these people and my current followers.
I’ve also been continuing to reply to any comments I’ve received on my posts and tried to create further conversation to engage with them, as well as continuing to poll my audience about what they would like to see as they are part of the process of shaping the development of my project.
I am continuing to collaborate with others and I am almost finished a commission artwork.
Breaking and Remaking
In breaking and remaking my model I have created new variations of my art in my DA which has been very successful from the number of likes and comments, surpassing many of my other recent tweets in engagement. I created a “meet the artist” post of myself which was a success with my audience of other artists as well as other BCM students. I will continue to break and remake my model to grow my project in the future.
Minimum Viable Product
I have created one Instagram Reel so far as a minimum viable product which has been averagely successful from the number of likes. Even though this is not a sign of meaningful interaction and success it has been viewed over 500 times. I want to continue my exploration of the Reels feature to achieve my goal of creating therapeutic video content for my audience, and I have found watching the Reels of other accounts such as miniswartist and _artamour_ useful in gaining inspiration.
I haven’t seen much interaction with my recent posts on Pinterest, likely due to my inactivity and lack of interacting with other accounts. After researching, I’ve begun to use the scheduling feature of Pinterest which has been convenient. I still believe that this is a useful platform for artists, so I will continue using this platform on the side as well as Facebook, a platform popular with many of my older family and friends who love seeing my artworks.
My current goals for The Drawing Lab are to:
- Continue to explore Instagram Reels
- Finish my commission
- Finish my current collaboration
- Not being defined by my model and continuing to create new art
