I would like to ask you about your opinion concerning the name which you use as an artist.
I have a Facebook fanpage for my art, with a nickname (and I have a nickname also on DA). But - right now my very first written and illustrated book is going to be published, and it will be under my real name.
Now I wonder if I should use my real name (and have a consistency across all kinds of social media and promoting sites), with the disadvantage of losing a bit of privacy, or keep the nickname on other sites, and have my real name only on a business cards (which is a bit confusing for potential customers).
What do you think? What is better for an illustrator? Do you have an experience with this kind of problem?
I'll be very thankful for your advice
Have a nice day, and sorry for my English
