Continued understanding. Day 3: Getting it out there. Illustrator Andy Gilmore doesn’t have his own website yet he has one of the best web presences I’ve ever come across. Andy achieves this by maintaining 6 different social platforms for displaying his work. Flickr (774 contacts), Blogspot (between 8 and 12 posts a month), a second Blogspot (around 10 posts a month), Space Collective (updated monthly), My Space (389 friends) and Etsy (15 items for sale). If you Google his name, 5 of these sites come on the first page.
Manage all this, and remaining prolific. That’s the ticket. Easy when you know how!
