#30everyday - Week 2!
We're just over a week into the first #30everyday challenge - Wolves vs. Unicorns! The DA staff are still showing up hard (because they "have" to :) ) but it's been so awesome seeing everyone from the community jump in since I opened it up last week. I'd love to personally invite YOU to get involved too - daily practice is so rewarding for all creative people, and I think once you start you'll be shocked by how natural it feels as part of your artistic life! Just pick a side; #teamwolf or #teamunicorn and start making! I will personally critique every single piece that gets submitted with #30everyday, and I encourage everyone doing this to get in there and do the same. A thoughtful comment is worth it's weight in gold, and I may well go through these at the end of the month and do something nice for people I see doing their best to help their fellow everyday questers out! Feel free to spam your favourite piece from the challenge out in your comment (totally ok if it's your own!).

Art And Money
I received a great question from a deviant recently regarding an important and not visible enough topic; art & money. With their permission, I'm sharing it and my answer here in the hopes it's of value. Hi ekud! My name is *****. I see you are an experienced freelance Illustrator and Art Director also from Australia, and I am working towards a career similar to yours. As an aspiring full-time digital illustrator I hope you don't mind if I kindly ask your advice on a work offer I have recently received...? With my experience lying almost exclusively in single piece commission works I am unsure of whether to accept or decline and unfortunately live in a location with no access to experienced artists to ask their opinion. Someone I trust has offered 50% of profits made from a project they would write (and I would Illustrate) for them for 'free'. I'd love to work on it for experience and practise but don't know if one would suggest against working before payment, or suggest spending

#30everyday
As the CCO here at DA I'm occasionally allowed to make very serious and not at all ridiculous requests like requiring all new HQ hires to make a piece of art featuring either a Wolf or a Unicorn every day for their first 30 days of employment. It occurs to me I may as well extend the invitation to anyone reading - join us on a month long creative adventure featuring two awesome subjects, a field of plucky artistic protagonists and one silly Australian man offering advice and critique along the path. LETS DO THIS! If you're in just get started and use #30everyday :w00t:

Listened to the new DA podcast with you minutes ago, great talk and explanations about DA :headbang:

Hi Ekud, just wanted to say big thanks for the DA Podcast yesterday. It's an exciting time w/ Eclipse and starting to know the faces behind DA Team. It was a great experience getting to hear your creative thoughts and response to feedback. DA is unique and my favorite social media so keep up the excellent work. Have a nice day. Thank you so so much.

Thanks for the fav!!
