TL;DR: I’m offering commissions and items in my shop- please check them out! … After working for 5 years at a part time job, I have the opportunity now to work full time as an artist- THE DREAM!!!

I spoke with a friend yesterday and we were talking about how to add “value” to your audience. All the examples I was given for a value add to my audience was centred around teaching information. Here’s the thing tho… I don’t want to be a teacher. There are tons of very passionate teachers out there, but I am not one of them. I like giving advice or showing my process, but sitting down and writing out lesson plans and harping on a concept for a week just sounds like torture to me. That said, I think there is a value in sharing your process. Artists can learn from it sure, but non-artists (my main audience) may find the process entertaining.
