What is a Hashtag?
So we all know what it is, well most of us do. To get a list of hashtags for the artist, sign up for my newsletter.
What is Art. Post. Promote?
For many years I was a marketing manager. I was very good at it. It was before social media. Some times I was called brand manager or art director. Each company had a different title, but basically all the same. How to engage people is basically what I did.
How to Watermark your Photos
With so many artist using social media, there have been instances of individuals copying and using your images. As much as I do not want a watermark on all my work, I think as artists we all need to protect what is ours. So here is a video I made to show how I apply a watermark to my work.

But I still cannot resist going through all the glossy magazines and looking at all those red bottom shoes.
Experimenting with transfers
