Even though the pandemic means we can’t be together at comic and art conventions, like San Diego Comic-Con and LightBox, we didn’t want to miss an opportunity to help artists grow and connect with one another! We jumped at the chance to participate in the “at home” versions of those conventions to showcase insight and expertise from some excellent artists. With the below panels, you can take part in a warmup for artists, learn the history of DeviantArt, discover how personal projects can lead to paid gigs, and find out tricks to using social media as an artist.
Social Media for Artists
@loish, @Picolo-kun, and @kianamai connect for a panel navigating the challenges of social media for contemporary artists. From asserting your artistic voice, how to gain followers and engagement, and balancing your life with responsibilities to the art community, they cover it all. Hosted by DeviantArt’s Head of Social Media, @ggMattB.

It's in Oslo (Norway) 5. November!
